Title: Creating and Evaluating Metadata for a Large Legacy Thesis Collection: From 'Vocational Agriculture' (1922) to 'Microemulsion-mediated syntheses' (2004)
Creator: Potvin, Sarah; Creel, James Silas
Abstract: In the summer of 2012, Texas A&M University Libraries uploaded more than 16,000 retrospectively-digitized masters-level theses, dating from 1922 to 2004, into our DSpace institutional repository. Item records for the Retrospective Theses collection were created by mapping existing MARC records, then transforming and enhancing this metadata. Records included fields encoded in our Qualified Dublin Core schema, as well as the custom Thesis schema developed by the TDL member consortium. MODS metadata records were also generated, to be stored as bitstreams.
Description: Poster prepared for the TxETDa/USETDA Region 3 Joint Conference and revised for upload into repository.
