Primary Sources

Most primary source materials will be set as "Text" in the type field.

In the Item Type Metadata there are only two fields:


original format

For non-textual materials, select from:

  • Moving image
  • Oral History
  • Sound
  • Still Image
  • Hyperlink

The Item Type Metadata has tailored fields for these formats, so that you can record things like the length of videos, the format, and other metadata.

Rules will be determined for these formats as we start adding them.
