Title: Metadata Crosswalk for a Museum Collection in a Thematic Digital Library
Issue Date: 2015
Description: The Biblioteca Digital de Arte (BDArt) Digital Library hosted by the Thematic Repository at the University of Porto (Repositório Temático da U.Porto) aggregates documents from the library and the archive collections belonging to the Fine Arts School of the University of Porto (Faculdade de Belas Artes da U.Porto). This school has a museum collection containing a significant set of world-class objects managed with distinct processes and tools from those currently used in libraries and archives elsewhere. Interoperability between the collections of the archive, the library, and the museum is necessary because many works allocated to different collections are closely related and can only be seen as a whole by cross-collection search functionalities. The goal of this work, the first of its kind to be developed at the University of Porto (U. Porto), is to integrate the museum collection with archives and library collections in the repository and to use an open-source technology (DSpace). Our experiment involved the selection of appropriate representations of the objects and the definition of a metadata crosswalk between the original metadata standards and qualified Dublin Core. As a result, we created the BDA Museum Collection as a BDArt subcommunity using an XML export procedure that we expect to be helpful in future developments of other museum collections in the Thematic Repository at U.Porto
