DPLA Publishes White Paper on Archival Descriptions

The Digital Public Library of America’s (DPLA) Archival Description Working Group released a white paper, “Aggregating and Representing Collections in the Digital Public Library of America,” which makes recommendations for incorporating records of “aggregate-level archival objects” into DPLA and for “providing context through collection-level metadata for digital objects, whether they originate from archives or not,” such as how the metadata is created, gathered, and displayed, according to the DPLA blog. The working group also recommends “that collection information be made more accessible in DPLA records by adding it to the DPLA’s portal.”

For more information, read the blog post.
