When developing a local workflow, there are many factors to keep in mind:
Once collected (any method), metadata and bitstreams may be entered individually using the SOAR submission process.
Metadata may be exported in .csv file, cleaned, and bulk uploaded to SOAR upon review with OLIS Repository administrators
Metadata Template and Submission Process
SOAR uses Dublin Core metadata. A template has been developed that includes fields to address common content types. An overview of the fields included in the template is available. It is possible to add additional metadata fields as defined in the Metadata registry. The template also provides information on minimum required fields, general information on how each field is to be used, values included in drop-down selections were applicable, fields that display on the simple item record (if they have content) and fields that are automatically generated as part of the submission process. The template and submission process document can be requested through soar @ suny.edu.
