Terminology

The workspace is a place for you to create items and curate their resources.

An item is a group of manuscript images. An item has a name which is a sequence of letters, numbers and underscore and must begin with a letter. Within an item you will upload your manuscript images and transcriptions, see below a workspace screenshot of item Bates35 from the Daisy Bates Collection.

A resource is a group of files corresponding to a manuscript page. You will upload an image of a manuscript page (preferably in in tiff format) and the workspace will create formats suitable for display on the web (e.g. jpeg), a thumbnail and a TEI transcription. The set of files is the resource.
