MetadataShow full item record
Preliminary findings on the deployment of metadata for a project using DSpace at the University of Washington Libraries are presented. Problems encountered include mapping user-provided metadata for a domain-specific image collection to Dublin Core. Creating collection-specific qualifiers and adding value prefixes were tested in the DSpace configuration. Data inconsistency caused some technical problems, as well as bringing to light other issues involved in deploying a system with user-supplied content.
