Levels of reality

I have really enjoyed putting together the exhibits, because it allowed for a little bit of creativity, and it was so satisfying to see the finished product.

This last week was really the time to grapple with the need to customize metadata, depending on the needs of the collection, to deal with the three levels of cataloging: the  digital object (be it surrogate or born-digital file), the original object that was digitized (if it exists), and the primary event or object represented in the original object digitized (if it exists). With Nancy’s help we were able to adjust our metadata to meed the requirements of our special exhibit.

It’s been a pleasure working with everyone. As much as I like the autonomy of the online courses, I have always enjoyed the in-person classes more, because I like the interaction.  Take care and good luck!
