Meeting Minutes for 04/17/2018

Digital Archive Committee Meeting - Tuesday, April 17, 2018 -  1pm

Pika & Islandora Update - Jordan

  • Have recently had a need to restrict certain collections from showing up outside of the owning library, so that is now an option that is available (it is called Private Collections)
    • This is done at the OPAC Admin level, so can only be done by someone at Marmot
  • Jordan has submitted a ticket to allow libraries to add/remove their collections from the “More Collections from the Archive” scroller, in order to keep the scroller from getting too long
    • Everyone thought this was a good idea, and a way to highlight different collections

Metadata Standards Committee Report - Lacy

  • Presented a long list of suggestions from the Metadata Standards Committee meetings
    • Everyone agreed that suggestions made sense & would improve the archive.
  • The list can be found here
