Ingesting into Compass (the Five College digital library) has commenced! Ingest includes only the digital assets with their identifiers so the collections are not viewable to the public until their metadata finds them. That process, headed by the wonderful Digital Library Application Manager roughly involves:
- Transfer of microfilm metadata from spreadsheet to ArchivesSpace (ASpace was not implemented when microfilm description was taking place)
- Transfer of microfilm and photograph metadata from ArchivesSpace to Compass and matching that data to its digital asset.
- Transfer of serials metadata from bib records in Aleph to Compass and matching that data to its digital asset.
- Updating metadata records to include a Compass URL.
More to come and hopefully some viewable records to share soon!
