Dublin Core Breakdown

Below is the Dublin Core breakdown, which explains how we decided what to include in each section of the metadata. In order to provide continuity throughout the collection, some sections are not included in the project. This is because we had limited information to go off of within the collection and because we only worked with still images.

Title: All images were given identifications in the physical photograph catalog. The title can be found after “Image of…” in the physical catalog.

Subject: We opted not to include a subject for the images because the title and description provide a sufficient amount of information to make the image searchable.

Description: Descriptions are found in the physical catalog. The physical catalog states “Image of…” which is the description used in the online catalog.

Creator: We opted not to include a creator for the images because some images did not include a direct photograph or original owner, only the donor.

Source: All images are sourced from Bradley Academy Historical Association’s collection that was donated to Bradley Academy Museum and Cultural Center. Some images include more than one source depending on the line of donation.

Publisher: All images include two publishers, Bradley Academy Project Team in HIST 6450 (the name we created as a group identifier) Bradley Academy Museum and Cultural Center, who allowed the collection to be digitized.

Date: Images are dated or roughly dated, depending on the information from the physical catalog. Contributor: Bradley Academy Historical Association donated the collection.

Rights: Bradley Academy Museum and Cultural Center owns the Bradley Academy Historical Association collection.

Relation: We opted not to use relation because more information and genealogy studies would need to be conducted to determine full relations between the photographs, people within the photographs, and collections.

Format: We chose to use format as the identifier for the type of still image. In this section there are newspaper clippings, paper documents, yearbook photographs, and regular photographs.

Language: Images are in English.

Type: All images in the collection are still images.

Identifier: We opted not to use identifier. Instead identifiers can be found within the tags.

Coverage: Images cover a wide range of time.
