  • Digitize existing contentBorne digital content
  • Operational Point of view.Encoded Archival Description (EAD) is an XML standard for encoding archival finding aids, maintained by the Technical Subcommittee for Encoded Archival Description of the Society of American Archivists, in partnership with the Library of Congress.

  • Patron point of view
  • Choose a collection or item
  • Choose a collection or item
  • Go to the EAD Viewer which provides structure for collections.
  • You can see different levels of the structure map. 3 leves are visible. There can be more. The levels will scroll to the left. A thumbnail from Rosetta will show on the right.Clicking on the thumbnail will show the content of that folder.
  • This is Sitting Bull, who was a famous Indian chief in the 1800’s. You can click on a description on the left and change the photos.
  • Clicking the INFO tab on the upper right will slide into view the existing metadata.
  • Next,Aleph and Rosetta currently does not handle Collections very well. In the coming releases of Rosetta there are some Collection level capabilities but we had very large, complex collections.We built our own tool, the EAD ToolLet me show you an example

Putting it all together for digital assets Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Putting it alltogether forDigitalAssetsBeck LoceyJon Morley
  • 2. ObjectivePatrons – Globalization – To provideaccess to library content throughoutworldwide.Internal Operations – To create anautomated digital pipeline fromdigitizing content to patron consumption.Extending to crowdsourcing in future.
  • 3. Physical Assets Digital Content Church History LibraryRosetta EAD Tool Aleph Primo (Encoded (Master Archival Record) Description) 2011 2010
  • 4. Digital PipelineIngest Collection Rosetta EAD Tool Aleph Primo (Encoded (Master Archival Record) Description) PID 555 tag Harvest & Index
  • 5. Click onThumbnail
  • 6. Digital Pipeline- Pipeline from digitization to delivery- Manage large collections- Component level detail- Accommodate multiple library systems • LDS Church Library • BYU – Provo (University) • BYU - Idaho (University) • BYU – Hawaii (University)- standards ( Dublin Core vs. Marc)- Pipeline conduits – API’s, job-list’s, Cron Job, publication sets
  • 7. Organizing and displaying Collections
  • 8. EAD Tool (Encoded Archival Description) A finding aid that adds a viewable structure to a collection.- Many large, complex collections- Aleph stores only the collection level descriptive metadata- Add / edit / delete component level details- Rosetta 3.0 doesn’t have enough functionality for our collections.
  • 9. EAD Tool Admin
  • 10. EDIT Drag and dropXML or CSV files
  • 11. Rosetta Dual RoleTwo instances of Rosetta1. DRPS – Digital Records Preservation System (dark archive)2. DCMS – Digital Content Management System (public use)
  • 12. Why separate instances?-Security / Access-Redundancy-Performance vs. Preservation - Fixity – don’t require for DCMS - Asset Lifecycle – frequent updates - Rendition – Web optimized, compression, integration - Storage layer – tape vs. spinning
  • 13. Challenges• Configuration is fairly complex within and between systems• Large Batch Ingest has been difficult• Metadata enhancement and updating not easy• Re-ingesting content into Rosetta problematic• Collections Management – Built EAD tool to manage collections – Rosetta 3.x? – Periodicals?• PDF Content – Progressive PDF download in Adobe Reader X is not fully supported – 2 searches to see results of a PDF Full text search.
  • 14. Successes– Ingested over 57,000 Family books ranging from 1 MB to 800 MB for Family History department.– Ingested 700,000 files. Most are linked to EADs for Church History.– Consistent User experiences even with large files– Good response times • 100,000 views / Month • Once the pipelines are established, they work well.– Able to create customizable solutions for multiple institutions.
  • 15. Under Development– Restricted content– Mobile capable solutions (Responsive Design)– Reporting capabilities– Monitor usage
