Content analysis, Pre-Ingest and Metadata

During the last months a lot of work has been done by our partners to increase the content of BHL-Europe. Work has been done on the analysis and the preparation of the monographs and serials that are relevant for the biodiversity community. We also discussed and established a methodology to further expand the content provider network.

BHL-Europe content providers are currently testing data transfer and data quality for the Pre-Ingest into the BHL-Europe system. Samples of digitised items with the related metadata are uploaded and checked to better understand the data of our partners before ingesting them.

A first draft of a metadata walkthrough and guideline for the content providers has been developed as well. This documentation will be further enhanced and will be a basic helpdesk literature for content providers wanting to ingest their metadata and scans to the BHL-Europe system.
