Resource Type

Existing Resource Type

Transcribe the type of resource it is. 

  • There will be a controlled vocabulary of resource types that will be updated regularly to reflect all types of digital objects.

    • Ex. Resource Type: Diary

    • Ex. Resource Type: Newspaper

Creating Resource Type

If there is no resource type assigned to the resource, choose from the resource type control vocabulary the correct material designation the resource is. 

  • If the resource type of the digital object being described is not in the controlled vocabulary, inform the Digital Units Manager or the Metadata & Catalog Librarian and they will add it to the list of resource types to choose from.

Other Resource Type

There should only be one resource type for each resource.  If there is more than one resource type assigned to a resource, delete the incorrect one.
