|Dublin Core (DC) Mapping:||dc.title|
|MARC Mapping:||245  $a|
|CONTENTdm Data Type:||Text|
|Dublin Core Definition:||A name given to the resource.|
|UA Definition:||The name given to the resource by the creator or publisher; may also be an identifying phrase or name of the object devised (created) by UA.|
If no title is available from the resource, create one. Avoid simple generic titles, but instead include significant, unique information that sufficiently describes the resource even outside the context of the collection. (For example, the title “On a horse” might be adequate for a photograph in the collection “Images of Theodore Roosevelt,” but it will not identify the resource if metadata is removed from this setting.)
In a created title, provide information in the order of Who or What followed by Where and/or When if needed for clarification. If needed to differentiate one item from another, add the date to the title. Use the form: month (spelled out), day (1 or 2 digits), year (4 digits). Do not use abbreviations or square brackets in created titles.
Generally omit from a created title terms denoting gender, race, or age, unless this information is considered important to bring out or is needed for context. For existing descriptions that are used as the basis for CONTENTdm metadata, generally remove outdated terms, or, if they are needed for context, update them to current terminology. If there is doubt about current terminology, leave such terms out.
Within a given collection, it may be desirable to collocate [i.e., arrange next to each other] related items by prefacing each title with a standard introductory word or phrase. For example, in the Ozark Folksong Collection, there are a relatively small number of spoken dialogs on various subjects; in these cases, the title was assigned the introductory word “Talk:”.
Observe the following conventions for entering data:
Honor clear author/creator preferences for capitalization.
This material depicts ethnic, racial, and gender insensitivity that was once commonplace in American society. Such portrayals were wrong then and are wrong today. While not representing the views of the University of Arkansas today, the item is being presented as it was originally created, because to do otherwise would be the same as claiming these prejudices never existed.
