Abstract

The Computational Collection Description project is developing mechanisms for generating field-specific collection-level descriptors from item values. Using the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) as a sample data set, we describe a flexible, extensible architecture for processing field-level values, an augmented Collection class to record the generated metadata, and our early results of enhancements for a DPLA collection.
