          Path: Digital Library Projects  : Urban Project  :  2006 updates  

Proposed Statement of Work (draft)

  1.  Update the Urban processing (Access) database to include:
    1. newly available image content (both New York Series and other Series); see:
      http://www.columbia.edu/cu/libraries/inside/working/UrbanWeb/index.htm

    2. revised caption information for some unidentified images; see:
      http://www.columbia.edu/cu/libraries/inside/projects/urban/updates/captions_2005-01-13.html

  2. Export the original RBML Urban finding aid from its current system; see:
    http://www.columbia.edu/cu/libraries/indiv/rare/guides/Urban/index.html

    (If it has not been substantively updated since 2002, this XML version should still be valid: http://www.columbia.edu/cu/libraries/inside/projects/urban/xml/urban_ead.xml)

  3. Replace information in RBML finding aid data with updated data from Urban project, retaining unique information in the RBML finding aid such as series and subseries notes.

  4. Re-generate the Urban New York City Series web pages with new images, new captions and RBML notes; see:
    http://www.columbia.edu/cu/lweb/eresources/archives/rbml/urban/newyork_series.html

  5. Rrepublish the RBML finding aid as EAD / XML / HTML with updated information from the Urban database and with (minimal) image links, including from non-New York Series.

  6. Make miscellaneous improvements & corrections; see:
