Item-level metadata may be generated from EAD finding aids (for item-described content, such as images), extracted from MARC records (such as sheet music or published materials), or generated by hand by Metadata & Digital Services.

After Digital Services digitizes content, JPEGs are handed off to the Metadata Librarians in the For_Metadata_Librarians folder on the share drive.

After MODS have been generated into the collection directory Metadata folder there, metadata librarians will move the folder to the Return_To_Digital_Services folder for preparation for upload.

See Descriptive metadata for more information on the current step-by-step procedures for metadata librarians.

See Creating collection xml file for creating the Collection XML file.

See Image_and_Text_Digitization for general Digital Services workflow overview and details.
