Overview

Hypatia has the goal of effectively managing born-digital components of an archival collection, collections traditionally described by Finding Aids in the form of EADs (Encoded Archival Descriptions). There is an established body of practice describing the physical components of such collections at many levels of detail, including physical artifacts (e.g., diskettes) associated with born digital materials. Describing, and delivering, digital content itself faces many challenges. The phrase "unprocessed collection" when applied to born digital materials means there is description only down to the physical media itself, with a requirement to associate digital artifacts, like a raw binary disk image and photos, to that description. The phrase "processed collection" means there is more detailed description, down to the file level, supporting an intellectual arrangement of the content as well as access to the individual files.

This analysis addresses both processed and unprocessed collections, assuming the Hypatia solution of mapping an EAD into Hydra/Fedora objects, then managing born-digital content as Fedora objects through the Hypatia interface.

Processing born-digital archival materials into Hypatia involves several discrete considerations.

  • Translating an EAD that describes an archival collection as a whole into well-formed Hydra/Fedora objects
    • Creating the set object that represents the entire collection
    • Creating intermediate set objects that represent the EAD hierarchy
    • Creating "item" objects that represent nodes in the hierarchy that describe individual objects
  • Translating item level information into well-formed (per Hydra) Fedora objects
    • Required datastreams and child objects
    • EAD to MODS mapping
  • Address the born digital materials
    • Recognizing what in the EAD describes "Born digital" content
    • Enriching the digital objects with file-level information

EAD only goes down to the single "Born digital" series description, with no details expressed at lower levels. A rationalized directory structure and FTK output are intended to support a direct translation into Hypatia objects for both unprocessed and processed views without an intermediary EAD.

Assumptions:

  • The entire EAD will be mapped into Hypatia digital objects representing both digital content and their physical and intellectual arrangement as expressed in the EAD hierarchy.
  • Non born-digital content
    • The non-born-digital portions of the EAD are converted to Hypatia objects to provide context to the born-digital objects.
    • The ongoing relationship of the those containing parts of the EAD as managed in Archivist Toolkit or elsewhere -- if or when Hypatia assumes management of that information as well -- is outside the scope of this document.
  • Born-digital content
    • Hypatia is intended to be the source of this information and the place where it is managed
    • Full (re)construction of an EAD from the Hypatia information is not an explicit goal

More assumptions:

  • The EAD header and front matter (publication statement, EAD profile, etc) will not be converted, nor will the slim <dsc> and optional <head> information that typically separates the Collection description from levels below.
    • the entire EAD will be copied as an artifact associated with the Collection.
  • The rest of the EAD, from <archdesc> down, will be consumed in its entirety and converted to a set of Fedora objects corresponding to each level, down to the lowest node.
  • terminal nodes are treated as digital objects, an "item" in Hydra and Stanford terms
  • The vocabulary of "levels" is remembered but otherwise irrelevant to the interpretation of collection, sets and items unless they explicitly aid in the mapping for a specific collection or site.

Sets vs items

A "collection" in Hypatia is the primary set established by the information at the initial <archdesc> level of the EAD, regardless of its "level" designation, e.g.,

  • collection -- Stanford, Virginia, Yale
  • fonds -- used by Hull

Intermediate levels defined by the hierarchical arrangement of <c> or <c0n> tags form a structural hierarchy of Hypatia sets.  The "level" vocabulary, while remembered, is not itself significant except as a aid in determining the boundaries between sets and individual Hypatia objects.  In practice, they might be any one of 

  • class
  • recordgrp
  • series
  • subfonds
  • subgrp
  • subseries
  • file
  • otherlevel

In general, "item" level entries in an EAD will map to individual Hypatia objects. The "file" level" may also be considered an item node for a specific EAD. Unless otherwise indicated for a specific conversion, other levels will translate to set objects in Hypatia, even if they are empty sets because the EAD had no item-level description.

Stanford FTK-backed Digital Object creation

Stanford uses the Forensic Toolkit (FTK) software to analyze and characterize the contents of computer media. Starting with the Gould collection, we will only provide a single series node in the EAD to represent "Born Digital Materials". Conversion routines will be able to auto-generate objects representing the unprocessed collection (the media artifacts themselves, e.g., hard drives and floppy discs) as well as detailed file content objects from a modified form of the FTK output. See Stanford FTK to Hypatia object mapping

EAD-to-MODS - general information

There is a scarcity, dare I say dearth, of tools available to do this mapping or to offer an existing implemented conversion.  So the mappings here are based on data encountered in the Hypatia sample EADs and can be augmented as we go along. They are informed by two sources:

Assumption: Working assumption is that all descriptive metadata, for collections, intermediate sets (levels) and digital objects will be MODS.

Issue: the mapping from EAD to MODS is not perfect and is not fully reversible:

  • The original EAD header, while preserved along with the original EAD, is not part of the makeup of the resulting Digital Objects and would not change.
  • While no metadata information should be lost, it may not be mappable to original form of expression if multiple styles or patterns are reconciled into one, e.g., implicit vs explicit labels based on <head> elements.
  • There are artifacts of EAD markup, such as qualifying element attributes, that have no corresponding place in MODS and will not be brought over unless further accommodation is made.

Issue: The EAD schema makes extensive use of complex XML types with mixed content. This is a pattern where an XML element contains a free mix of free text and other sub-elements.

  • They can be used as a form of entity markup, strongly typing references within a longer block of text:

    Works great, but embedded markup is not desirable

    Drop initial <p> and trailing </p>; otherwise retain <p> markup for short term convenience? It would have to be encoded (e.g., &lt;) and reinterpreted on output.

    Strip out embedded <title> markup

We will refer below to this set of embedded-element set of translations as "embedded element conversion".

Note that for Stanford, a lossy translation is not an issue as long as affected parts of the EAD are still sourced and maintained externally, e.g., in Archivist Toolkit. Eventually a transition away from the EAD support for markup will have to be addressed.

Issue: Tags that have no mapping into MODS

With one exception, we will map these into Notes, using displayLabel to let them appear with specific labels in the Hypatia display.

  • <scopecontent> -- map to MODS <abstract> per DLF Guidelines.
  • <bioghist> -- map to MODS <note>
  • <custodhist> -- map to MODS <note>
  • <relatedmaterial> -- map to MODS <note>
  • <otherfindaid> -- map to MODS <note>
  • <bibliography> -- map to MODS <note>
  • <processinfo> -- map to MODS <note>

Issue: Tag attributes that have no mapping into MODS

These are numerous and will not be enumerated in full. Some examples:

Conversion rule: Attributes not specifically targeted for conversion will be ignored/lost.

Issue: retaining ref and level information, do these map to appropriate container descriptions?

Issue: "otherlevel" levels -- <c level="otherlevel" otherlevel="SubSeries"> (Hull)

Issue: Stanford <container> conventions and mapping into a MODS "Location" note (revised 10/24/11 to split out Collection title in item record and nest this information in a relatedItem):

We will create a concise representation of the physical/logical location (as appropriate) of the materials in the context of the collection and its hierarchy. It will be a MODS <relatedItem><physicalLocation type="location">. It will be a concatenation of the following information:

  • Series and subseries names etc if present  -- e.g., Series 6: Born Digital Materials
  • The container type (box, map case, etc) and ID -- e.g., Box 11
  • A sub-container type + value, down to the level of the item -- e.g., Folder 3

Assembles as "Series 6: Born Digital Materials - Box 11 - Folder 3"

Is this generalizable, across Stanford collections? across institutions?

Map EAD label attribute to MODS displayLabel attribute

Note DLF guidelines suggests the first paragraph of <scopecontent> could be used as an abstract, but it does not otherwise map <scopecontent>. Recommend a simple clean mapping of each as described here. 

<abstract label="Summary:">The papers consist of correspondence, subject files, and writings, primarily documenting the professional career and personal life of James Tobin as an economist and educator.</abstract>

• Requires embedded element conversion
• Ignore a wrapping <desdgrp type="admininfo">
• They should be converted to notes in the order encountered in the EAD.
• A leading <head> value should map to the MODS displayLabel attribute, else provide a default displayLabel as follows:

  • <bioghist> = "Biography"
  • <acqinfo> = "Acquisition Information"
  • <prefercite> = "Preferred Citation"
  • <userestrict> = "Use restrictions"
  • <processinfo> = "Processing information"
  • <note> = "Note"

<prefercite id="ref6">

</prefercite>

<mods:note displayLabel="Cite As">James Tobin Papers. Manuscripts and Archives, Yale University Library.</mods:note>
