  40. The Data

  41. Metadata Sources • Data comes from a variety of sources • Detroit Historical Museums: FoxPro database • Henry Ford: Argus database • Meadow Brook Hall: Paper Database (3x5 cards)

  42. Data Issues • Integrating data from different sources • Partners do not use the same field names • Partners have different numbers of fields • Partners have different needs for searching

  43. How Do We Make It Work? • ISSUE: Integrating data from different sources Solution: Export data to a common format

  44. How Do We Make It Work? • ISSUE: Partners do not use the same field names • ISSUE: Partners have different numbers of fields • ISSUE: Partners have different needs for searching SOLUTION: Give each partner their own collection

  45. How Do We Make it Unified? • DLXS allows for cross-collection searching • We establish common fields amongst the collections (read: Dublin Core) • We use controlled vocabulary where possible for subject terms • Library of Congress Subject Headings • Getty Art and Architecture Thesaurus
