adding metadata

Once you have created an item in the workspace, you can attach the metadata.

Click on the Item Metadata tab. The Nyingarn Workspace has a standard metadata schema. The schema profile displays the fields our team has developed in consultation with AIATSIS. There are four sections of metadata – About, Original Source Information, Who and Other.

The About tab contains the core data for your manuscript item; see below.

The location of the manuscript language is recorded and displayed on a map, in the Other tab.

The Original Source Information tab connects your manuscript with existing catalogues and publications, and the Who tab details who worked on the manuscript. Metadata fields in red guide the minimum metadata needed for an item to move into the Nyingarn Repository.
