Welcome to Bob Lucore's LIBR-281 Metadata Project

site logo 300x369

You have landed on the welcome page for Bob Lucore’s final project for LIBR 281-10, Fall 2014, Metadata, in the Information School at San José State University. My project utilizes Omeka, an open source web-platform for organizing and presenting collections, to demonstrate the use of the Dublin Core Metadata scheme. The metadata is applied to sample contract language excerpted from a variety of labor-management collective bargaining agreements from the late 1980 through the mid-1990s.

The project is described in detail under the Project Documentation tab (above) and its drop-down sub-menus. There some relevant literature for the project is reviewed, and the design and implementation of the project is explained.

The fundamental components of the project are found via the Browse Agreements. Here you will find an interface that allows you to search or browse the agreements, utilize the Dublin Core elements to find your way about and more--as discussed in the documentation.

You can learn more about me by clicking on the About tab. The credits for the images used to illustrate this site are referenced under the Image Credits tab.

Below I have reproduced the instructions for the Metadata Projects, as given by Professor Mary Bolin on the LIBR-281 course web site.

Metadata Project:

In this assignment, you will choose a metadata scheme, an implementation of that scheme, and applicationof that scheme, and create a product. The product might be a set of records, an application profile, an XML schema, a detailed crosswalk, among many other possibilities.

Project elements:

  • Introduction/background
  • Relevant literature (taken from Assignment 2)
  • Description of project: goals, steps, procedure
  • Product: Product should be as substantial as a research paper (see description above). It will vary according to the nature of the project.
  • Conclusion
  • References

Use whatever style you prefer (e.g., APA, MLA), but use it consistently. It is important to narrow your project to something that is well-defined and do-able in a short time.
