Output – SAFIR: Images content model – overview

Title: Digital Library Project (SAFIR): Content model for images

Pages: all
Date Released: 29-01-2009

URI for Output: https://vle.york.ac.uk/bbcswebdav/xid-316149_3

Summary of contents:

The output provides a Fedora content model for images.

Although the content model is developed in the specific context of York, it provides a useful reasoned overview of the metadata requirements and model (for images, technical information, preservation metadata), conventions for datastreams, creating alternate versions, recording relationships, indentifiers, access control requirements, workflow, and rights.

Comments:

For organisations using the Fedora repository platform, the content model provides an example of a content model for images. More importantly it also provides a template for the development of other content models.
