DRI Batch Metadata Template Blog Part Two: The Atlantic Philanthropies Archive Project

07 July 2020

In the second part of the Digital Repository of Ireland's (DRI) three-part series of blog posts on capturing metadata using the DRI Batch Metadata Template, we look at the benefits of using the template for the Atlantic Philanthropies Archive Project.

In the second blog in the DRI's three-part series on using the DRI Batch Metadata Template, Anja Mahler, Digital Archivist for the Atlantic Philanthropies Project, discusses her role in generating metadata and batch ingesting objects to the DRI as part of the Atlantic Philanthropies Project.

In this informative blog, Anja covers how she developed guidelines, collection structures, ingest schedules, and metadata policies using the DRI Batch Metadata Template. She also discusses the work involved in the hands-on creation of metadata and ingestion of digital objects into the DRI. More information can be found on the DRI blog
