Bibliographic Metadata[edit]

Describe the intellectual content of the whole work

The bibliographic data of the digitized works is delivered by the institute in MAB2 ("Maschinenlesbares Austauschformat für Bibliotheken") format. MAB is a special data structure which is used in libraries for the exchange of metadata. For detailed information about the import of MAB data check the corresponding mapping.

Structural Metadata[edit]

Represents the inherent structure of the complete work

Structural Metadata in the context of the ViRR application describe the logical structure of a work.

  • Reflects the division of the work into its constituent parts
  • Depends on the physical carrier medium
  • Special case: An article begins in one work and continues in a second work (one structural element split in two works)

Further understandings of structural metadata which might be addressed at a later stage:

  • Physical structure:
    • Reflects the layout/arrangement of the text on a specific physical artefact
    • Might differ for different physical carrier mediums of the same (intellectual) work
  • Other structural information
    • Dependent on the mark-up language of the transcription (e.g. TEI), other information about the text can be attached, e.g. semantic or syntactic information, incl. linguistic categorizations (clause, morpheme, part-of-speech) or narrative structure (e.g. theme). See TEI-Levels of Transcription.
