    • Hyrax metadata ordering for fields containing multiple values:


      • What does the IG think ought to happen within Hyrax by default re: ordering of fields with multiple values? What would be the ideal scenario?

        • Subject, keyword other field types where order might be desired to indicate primary topic

        • Some ordering in place by having one primary creator and others listed as contributor

        • Probably not able to be limited to certain Resource Types

        • Revisit discussion at next meeting
