This paper proposal presents an analysis of research involving a network of Open Archive Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH) data-providers who engage in ethnolinguistic information-resource stewardship.
OLAC technical infrastructure needs to be build as three seperate interacting systems. Each system with a unique function related to data:
Harvesting, Enhancing, Engagement.
The first step in creating a useful interaction around archival records related to languages it to watch how users are behaving in current search.
Is everything an archive? Are there limits to the term? How are linguists using the term?
Does the embrace of the vocabularies increase with translations?
An initial look at issues in removing OLAC roles and replacing them with MARC roles.
A few motivated thoughts about the Dublin Core elements of abstract and tableOfContents.
A special presentation by Hugh Paterson III for INFO 5223 at the University of North Texas, Denton October 2022.
A reflection on OLAC metadata quality assessment processes after readings for course work at UNT.
If we take a design look at Dublin Core, is it really as flexible as proclaimed or are there limits imposed by semantics.
