We collect metadata for each collection on a standardized descriptive metadata spreadsheet. This spreadsheet includes a large number of possible fields for descriptive metadata. We simply use the fields that apply to a certain collection and temporarily hide the others. This standardized spreadsheet is used later to upload the data into Content dM.

Most of the fields on the spreadsheet correlate to a Dublin Core element. The list below shows each of the fields, the Dublin Core element it links to, and the data type.

Below are a list of the fields included on our descriptive metadata spreadsheet and an example of the spreadsheet.
