  • Topics
    • samvera/hyrax-metadataists questions
      • #3819 Enable Controlled Vocabulary Support on Collections -
        • Right now controlled vocab for Location field not working for Collection metadata
        • This would need to be in place to use additional CVs on Collections if defined
        • Would not affect metadata of collection members
        • Group thinks this sounds good. Julie H. will update issue.
      • #3889 Collections: you can't add a rights statement to a collection -
        • Some users want to apply Rights Statement to whole collection, others feel statements only appropriate at item-level
        • In Hyrax, Rights Statement at collection level would not affect collection members as currently configured
        • What is the benefit of applying RS to a collection? Sharing of collection records as guidance for rights but not to be taken in place of any item-level rights statement.
        • Why License but not Rights Statement on collections?
        • Potential for confusion and conflicts between collection metadata and item metadata.
        • Have it as a default option, but not required. Could be removed locally.
        • Consensus: add Rights Statement as field available for collections to use but should not be required.
      • Source field also not on Collections
