  • How to make MARC and EAD metadata available in the “Catholic Portal” – Catholic Research Resources Alliance (CRRA) Blog
    not something else The Portal s underlying indexer does not deal very well with encodings of another kind If your system does not export records as UTF 8 and it exports things in MARC 8 instead then use an open source application called yaz marcdump from Index Data to transform your records from one encoding into another Once yaz marcdump is installed you can execute a command like the following to do the transformation yaz marcdump f MARC 8 t UTF 8 o marc l 9 97 input mrc output mrc The command translates MARC records from f MARC 8 encoding to t UTF 8 encoding It outputs o the result as MARC records and inserts the letter a ASCII character 97 into the leader l at position 9 It uses the file named input mrc as input and it outputs the result to a file named output mrc Every time you export your records you should export everything that you feel is relevant to the portal Do not worry about additions changes nor deletions We here at Portal Central handle this issue by deleting all of your records locally and re indexing the whole lot After the records have been exported save them on a Web server and finally tell Eric Morgan the URL of the resulting file Please don t change the name of the URL Eric will harvest the records and incorporate them into the index As of this writing it is a good idea to tell Eric when new records are available but at some point in time this won t be necessary EAD Here s the short version Use validated EAD files to encode the content you deem apropos to the Portal Save all the EAD files in a single directory on a Web server making sure each file is given a xml extension Tell Eric Morgan the URL of the directory and he will take care of the rest Here s the longer version Use whatever tool you desire to create EAD files describing the archival content you deem appropriate for the Portal There are any number of available editors and applications facilitating this process Make sure the resulting EAD files validate against the EAD DTD or schema It doesn t really matter which one but right now validation against the DTD is easier to handle here at Portal Central Each did level element in your EAD files will eventually become a record in the Portal s index During pre processing here at Portal Central unique unitid attributes will be added to each did level element if no unitid attributes exist in the first place This pre processing satisfies the need for unique identifiers You need to do nothing in regards to unique identifiers Each did level unittitle element will recursively be combined with its parent did unittitle element to form a human readable description of each content item Consequently there is nothing you need to do in regards to human readable descriptions The
