|Members of the
working group will begin applying the guidelines to some of their projects –
two workflows will be presented today by Rebecca Guenther, LC, and Erika
Linke, Carnegie Mellon. As the
registry grows with records from LC, Carnegie Mellon, Harvard University, and
others, a broader adoption of the guidelines is expected for other projects.
It’s also fair to say we expect the guidelines to evolve based on everyone’s
experience using them in Phase 1, both people creating the records and people
using the records.
|Not all functional
requirements for the Registry were implemented in Phase 1. Outstanding
requirements include making the registry visible as an entity and to a wider
community; enabling the bulk harvesting or extraction or records for other
applications; improving batch processing to allow updates; and improving
displays where an item has been digitized more than once, in different ways
or to different extents.
