Review of DAWG priorities:

2. Infrastructure priorities:

3. Implementation


We need deep thought about the underlying database:
Discussion of the underlying scheme that can hold metadata ingested using a variety of schema. It appears to be impossible and not desirable to map everything to one single scheme. MPEG7 may have to be expanded as other metadata schemas are introduced.

OpenURL (Ann Montanaro)

RUL Committee charged to look at OpenURL: Marty Kessleman, Myoung Wilson, Mary Page and Ann Montanaro have been looking at several vendor products. There will be demonstrations on May 14 and 21 of EBSCO and SIRSI products. DAWG members are urged to attend. Discussion followed about how OpenURL works as well as the possibility of looking at a total open source option or hybrid solution. Ann will raise this with the RUL committee.

Digital Object Workflow discussion:

Chart created thinking mainly of IMLS but also generic application


Standards, quality control and a process for putting digital objects where they can be preserved and accessed with uniform metadata are needed.
