Definition The work type designation determines which set of metadata fields will be used.

Art = collections incorporating VRA Core elements such as Style, Material, and Technique. Often, but not exclusively, associated with Art Library collections.

Image = image-based collections (the majority of our holdings)

Text = newspapers, catalogs, and pamphlets; described briefly at object (parent) level, with searchable text being the only unique value at the page (child) level.
