Recipes for Metadata Entry for the University of Arkansas Libraries

Digital Exhibit

Field Name: Digital Exhibit is the default. However, for projects which digitize a complete collection, rather than selected items, use Digital Collection.
Requirement: Required (mandatory)
Repeatable: No (unless the resource appears in multiple collections)
Search: Yes
Hide: No
Vocabulary: Yes (Controlling will make the title searchable as a phrase)
Dublin Core (DC) Mapping: dc.relation.isPartOf
MARC Mapping: 773 [0 ] $t
CONTENTdm Data Type: Text
Dublin Core Definition: A related resource in which the described resource is physically or logically included.
UA Definition: The title of the digital project or collection; that is, the digital exhibit or collection name.

Because this field is used to record the name of the digital project or collection to which the item belongs, it should normally contain only a single value. The exception is resources that appear in multiple collections—in such cases, record each exhibit or collection name, separating these multiple entries with a semicolon space.

Note that it may be appropriate to include other separately named “relation.isPartOf” elements in a project.

When creating digital exhibit/collection titles, initial articles should be avoided (unless an acronym or integral part of the title (e.g., Los Angeles)). When entering the digital exhibit/collection title, use title case. That is, generally capitalize the first word and each significant word of the title and subtitle that follows, excluding articles, most conjunctions, and prepositions.
