Each image contributed to The AMICO Library must be doucmented by a "metadata record" that tells us about
the image file itself. To facilitate the creation of these records for
institutions not tracking this information, AMICO has created a computer
program that can 'extract' the core of the image metadata record from
submitted TIFF files.
To create these records, AMICO
must have in hand TIFF files for the images that will be part of your
AMICO Library contribution, and the Catalog Records for the works depicted.
If you wish to have metadata records created for your
submitted images, please contact AMICO
when you submit your image files.
||DC.Relation.Identifier [AMICO Identifier of the
Catalog Records where XID=RIL This is why we need to have validated
Catalog records present in order for the routine to work.]
||[AMICO Member Institution's Name]
||[Copyright AMICO Member Institution's Name]
All records created in this manner must be verified
by the AMICO Member using the online editor.
AMICO cannot create some fields in a metadata
record. Right now, we can do 'all or nothing'. So the default values
supplied in each record may not be correct. Members must verify
these, and use theOnline Editor http://update.amico.org
to make required corrections.
The Copyright statement is the most problematic,
as it will not be the same for all of your images. For example,
contemporary works still under copyright may require a different
copyright statement for the image. You may also want to add other
fields, such as the DC.Creator (XCN) group of fields to document
the creator of particular images.
