Sheet Music Consortium - Metadata Mapping Tool

About the Metadata Mapping Tool

The Sheet Music Consortium Metadata Mapping Tool is adapted from Emory University's Metadata Migrator software package, and like the Emory tool, development was funded by Institute of Museum and Library Services. The Metadata Mapping Tool allows museums, archives, libraries and other cultural heritage organizations to make their locally stored sheet music records available for online searching on the Sheet Music Consortium portal following the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH).

Sheet music collection managers are now able to map their sheet music records with the help of the Metadata Mapping Tool into MODS (Metadata Object Description Schema), DC (Dublin Core and QDC (Qualified Dublin Core) to create OAI-compliant XML records. The resulting OAI-ready XML file can then be registered at the Sheet Music Consortium Static Repository for data harvesting.
