This document is intended as a guide to data entry and descriptive cataloging for University of Louisville (UofL) digital collections in Hyku. It will be updated as necessary to accommodate modifications in the software and/or metadata schema.
Collections may be categorized as Art, Image, or Text work types. The Collection work type relates items to their parent collection.
Migrating our digital collections from CONTENTdm into Hyku required us to remap existing fields to predicates from heterogeneous schema. We also modified some of the field labels to make more sense to the end-user, and put the fields in an order—reflected in the order of this document—that highlighted the descriptive metadata at the top of the record and relegated the more administrative and technical information to the bottom.
