Europeana Data Model (EDM) Workflows in Archipelago

  • 1. Metropolitan New York Library Council, United States of America


During this workshop, Diego Pino Navarro and Allison Lund from the Metropolitan New York Library Council, introduce the audience to Archipelago’s general architecture and unique, flexible approach to metadata and media. They show live demonstrations of Archipelago instances where data and metadata values are being used/reused in a variety of commonly used standards and schemas (including IIIF V3, Dublin Core, and MODS). Using an Archipelago instance prepared with an EDM structured metadata webform and display template, and populated with freely available Europeana-sourced (consented and attributed) example digital objects and collections, they demonstrate adding new content to the repository using the supplied webform and viewing/reviewing the metadata and media for the newly created digital object(s). They then demonstrate adding an additional property or set of properties from an EDM core class to the webform and metadata display template. They then invite audience participants to interact within the same Archipelago instance to complete the same exercises demonstrated. They conclude with a brief discussion/question and answer session related to the Archipelago demonstration and EDM data modeling exercises.
