Presentation Description

In Scholars’ Mine, we have heavily customized the metadata in our series, event communities, journals and galleries. This allows us to more easily track the content in our IR, discover errors, find opportunities to make the IR more robust, and run statistics.

The Content Inventory report is an incredibly useful tool in managing Digital Commons because it combines data across series rather that our having to export each series, adjust the metadata fields and then combine them. One example of this is our faculty works which are deposited in departments and filtered into a Faculty Research and Creative Works collection.

In this presentation I will discuss the customizations in our theses and dissertations series, faculty series, and other structures and demonstrate how we use these in our work flow. I will also discuss uses of the Content Inventory Report.
