Metadata Mess: Managing Errors in Vendor-Supplied Metadata
In May 2018, UNC Libraries purchased a report from 1Science which listed 47,000 articles authored by UNC researchers. Although the vendor characterized the report as an out-of-the-box tool designed to fill an institutional repository, we found that it would take significant work to make it usable for UNC’s Hyrax-based institutional repository, the Carolina Digital Repository (CDR).

In this presentation, we will discuss the issues that we identified, including scripting errors, inconsistent metadata and rights concerns. We will describe the plans and processes to fix these issues and to adapt the metadata for our repository. Additionally, we will address best practices for uploads and future plans.

Introducing the Controlled Vocabularies Decision Tree
The Controlled Vocabulary (CV) Decision Tree is meant to provide guidance for selecting and using controlled vocabularies behind descriptive metadata fields. This guidance is useful within Hyrax and other software incorporating metadata fields that could benefit from controlled terms for consistency and accuracy. We will share the decision tree for selecting and modifying controlled vocabularies and the accompanying list of controlled vocabularies that we hope to collaboratively grow.

DOIng more with Hyrax
Hyrax-doi is a new Hyrax plugin that provides tooling for working with DOIs including model attributes, minting, and fetching descriptive metadata.  This presentation will give a quick tour of the features and how to use it in hopes of sparking conversation about how to improve it and its integration with Hyrax.  This is part of the Advancing Hyku project's work on extracting and contributing back features from Ubiquity Press' Repositories platform originally developed for the British Library.
