Digital pathway – What information should I record?

This resource, from Culture24, states – Your collections management system hopefully has the information you need to manage and make sense of the physical items you plan to digitise. Even if your collections data is good, you may need to enhance it, for example, by writing short captions for a particular use or adding keywords to help users find what they are looking for. When making digital copies of items, you also need to record further information specific to the reproduction process.It asks the questions:

  • What information should I record about the original item being digitised?
  • What information should I record about the process of digitisation?
  • How do I record rights information?
  • How can I help users find my resources?
