Digital + Container List Digital + Container List Presentation Transcript

  • Digital + Container List EAD and CONTENTdm Integration
  • Define the Need
    • Series inventory (finding aid) online is central location for information about the records
    • Link to finding aid from digital metadata (=one direction)
    • How to link to digital folder/file/object from finding aid?
  • Discovery Process
    • Asked DiMeMa Technical Support
      • How to get list of Reference URLs?
      • Not sure, suggested XML output
    • Experimented with XML
      • “ Standard CONTENTdm XML” contains Reference URL (“ViewerURL”)
  • Unexpected Help
    • December 2006 Max Evans expresses interest in project and offers advice on XML
    • Series of email correspondence working through ideas and suggestions, from using Excel extensively to creating an XSLT stylesheet
    • Ready to experiment with creating our own stylesheet with guidance and modeling after existing stylesheet for transforming our inventories
  • The Final Process
    • Export Standard CONTENTdm XML
    • Run stylesheet (XML Spy Home [Free])
    • Copy resulting table from HTML to Excel
    • Check that URLs and Titles and/or Identifiers line up then copy links into column “link”
    • Merge using MS Word to wrap EAD around container list (existing procedure)
  • 1. Export Standard CONTENTdm XML
  • XML Export
    • <?xml version=&quot;1.0&quot; encoding=&quot;ISO-8859-1&quot;?>
    • <metadata>

    Title so I know what I’m working with Numeric string helps me sort The desired URL
  • 2. The Stylesheet (XML -> HTML)
    • <?xml version=&quot;1.0&quot; encoding=&quot;UTF-8&quot;?>
    • <xsl:stylesheet version=&quot;1.0&quot; xmlns:xsl=&quot;http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform&quot;>
    • <xsl:template match=&quot;/&quot;>
    • <html>
    • <head>
    • <title>Extraction of Digital Collection Identifier and URL for Container Lists</title>
    • </head>
    • <body>
    • <p>Copy the following table into the original container list using the <i>Identifier</i> field to properly sort the objects.</p>
    • <table>
    • <tbody>
    • <tr>
    • <th>Title</th>
    • <th>URL</th>
    • <th>Identifier</th>
    • </tr>
    • <xsl:for-each select=&quot;metadata/record&quot;>
    • <xsl:sort select=&quot;identifier[last()]&quot;/>
    • <tr>
    • <td><xsl:value-of select=&quot; title &quot;/></td>
    • <td><xsl:value-of select=&quot; viewerURL &quot;/></td>
    • <td><xsl:value-of select=&quot; identifier[last()] &quot;/></td>

    • </body>
    • </html>
    • </xsl:template>
    • </xsl:stylesheet>
    Identifier with numeric string for sorting. Calling LAST use of that field as other metadata mapped to Identifier (consult XSLT documentation for more). The 3 fields that will create 3 columns in HTML table For Each compound object
  • 3. HTML output
  • 4. Container List in Excel
  • 5. Creating EAD
    • Microsoft Word Mail Merge
    • <c02 level=&quot;file&quot;>

    • </did>
    • </c02>
    • Reel, box, folder and link from Excel spreadsheet. Using mail merge to “wrap” EAD tags around content from container list. Copied to full EAD finding aid document edited usually in XMetal.
