    they comprise the universe of items in our special collections department Are they all of the things encoded as EAD files Do they all have some specific local note in our library catalog Are they all saved in a particular local spreadsheet or database The answer to these questions will help you determine how to extract your metadata for the Portal 4 Optionally flag records as CRRA Once you have identified records appropriate for inclusion in the Portal you may want to denote them as such For example if your records are in MARC insert something like crra into a local note such as 590 subfield a If your records are EAD files then you may want to insert crra into thewithin theelement This is one method that has worked for some members Many possibilities exist given the institution s workflow 5 Validate records Each and every record destined for the Portal must have three metadata characteristics First they must have a unique identifier For MARC records this is the 001 field For EAD files this is a element Identifiers are used by the Portal as database keys Second each record must have some sort of descriptive title element For MARC records this is usually 245 subfield a For EAD files this is usually denoted by the contents of a element These descriptive title elements provide a means for searching and put the object in context for the reader Finally every record must include some sort of location code or address pointing to the described object For MARC records this is often a call number in 099 or a URL in 856 subfield u For EAD files this may be anything from a denoting the postal address of your institution placed in the element to URLs inserted into elements within elements inside elements 6 Extract metadata records Note Remember it is important that your CRRA Web server folder contain all records your institution wants displayed in the Portal Member records destined for the Portal are harvested on a regular basis and are added to the Portal by refreshing all Portal records for the institution As new records destined for the Portal are identified or added at your institution ADD them to your Web server folder of CRRA records Similarly if you delete items from your institution that are currently in the Portal delete them also from your CRRA Web server folder and they will then be deleted from the Portal Run a report against your computer system searching for ALL your records past and present destined for the Portal whether in a particular call collection etc or if flagged as CRRA If for example your records are in MARC and flagged as crra then search your integrated library system for all records containing crra in 590 subfield a Save the set of results as a MARC record file on a Web server Tell Eric Morgan emorgan nd edu the resulting URL and he will do the rest If your records

    local note The University of Notre Dame adds the letters CRRA in MARC 590 subfield a Once this is done it is relatively easy for the systems librarian to do a search for CRRA in the 590 subfield a and download the resulting records to a file Alternatively the systems librarian might search for all items whose call numbers begin with BX and download the resulting set The process you use to denote and export your MARC records depends on your local environment When exporting your MARC records from your integrated library system it is imperative the records be encoded using the UTF 8 character set and 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 1 2 2 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

  • Catholic Research Resources Alliance :: Searching the Portal
    Search Field button may be used to add additional search fields to the form You may use as many search fields as you wish Search Groups For certain complex searches a single set of search fields may not be enough For example suppose you want to find books about the history of China or India If you did an ALL Terms search for China India and History you would only get books about China AND India If you did an ANY Terms search you would get books about history that had nothing to do with China or India Search Groups provide a way to build searches from multiple groups of search fields Every time you click the Add Search Group button a new group of fields is added Once you have multiple search groups you can remove unwanted groups with the Remove Search Group button and you can specify whether you want to match on ANY or ALL search groups In the history of China or India example described above you could solve the problem using search groups like this In the first search group enter India and China and make sure that the Match setting is ANY Terms Add a second search group and enter history Make sure the match setting next to the Search Groups header is set to ALL Groups Wildcard Searches To perform a single character wildcard search use the symbol For example to search for text or test you can use the search te t To perform a multiple character 0 or more wildcard search use the symbol For example to search for test tests or tester you can use the search test You can also use the wildcard searches in the middle of a term te t Note You cannot use a or symbol as the first character of a search Fuzzy Searches Use the tilde symbol at the end of a Single word Term For example to search for a term similar in spelling to roam use the fuzzy search roam This search will find terms like foam and roams An additional parameter can specify the required similarity The value is between 0 and 1 with a value closer to 1 only terms with a higher similarity will be matched For example roam 0 8 The default that is used if the parameter is not given is 0 5 Proximity Searches Use the tilde symbol at the end of a Multiple word Term For example to search for economics and keynes that are within 10 words apart economics Keynes 10 Range Searches To perform a range search you can use the characters For example to search for a term that starts with either A B or C A TO C The same can be done with numeric fields such as the Year 2002 TO 2003 Boosting a Term To apply more value to a term you can use the character For example you can try the following search economics Keynes 5 Which will
