    Digital Resource Management - June 2016 Enhancements

    Exporting Collections as an EAD 

    You can download collection information as an EAD (Encoded Archival Description) file. EAD allows for the standardization of collection information in finding aids, such as inventories and indexes, within and across repositories.
    You can download the EAD file from two locations:
    • When managing collections (Resource Management > Search and Sets > Manage Collections > Actions > Download EAD):
      Managing Collections
    • When editing collections (Resource Management > Search and Sets > Manage Collections > Edit):
      Editing Collections

    Support for Dublin Core as a Digital Import Profile Target Format  

    You can now select Dublin Core as the target format for digital import profiles (Resource Management > Resource Configuration > Configuration Menu > Record Import > Import Profiles > Digital) for remote representations (OAI DC) and CSV source formats. Previously, only MARC XML was available as the target format.
