Implementing a Collaborative Workflow for Metadata Analysis, Quality Improvement, and Mapping
The University of North Texas (UNT) and the Oklahoma Historical Society (OHS) are collaborating to digitize, process, and make publicly available more than one million photographs from the Oklahoma Publishing Company’s historic photo archive. The project, started in 2013, is expected to span a year and a half and will result in digitized photographs and metadata available through The Gateway to Oklahoma History. The project team developed the workflow described in this article to meet the specific criterion that all of the metadata work occurs in two locations simultaneously.
