The CUL Digital Collections: Filenaming, Workflow, and Metadata Guidelines: Framework for Building a Collection, Version 4 (V.4) was prepared by the Norwick Center for Digital Services (nCDS) staff of Southern Methodist University's Central University Libraries (SMU/CUL) to provide guidelines for creating and cataloging CUL Digital Collections in CONTENTdm using customized fields based on the Dublin Core Metadata Element Set.
The CDL Guidelines for Digital Objects (CDL GDO, this document) provides specifications for digital objects prepared by institutions for submission to CDL for preservation and access, through the CDL’s Merritt Digital Repository and the Online Archive of California (OAC) and Calisphere services.
The specifications are not intended to cover all of the administrative, operational, and technical issues surrounding the creation of digital object collections.
