what is virtual collections
What is “Virtual Collections”
  • OIS System to allow librarians / curators to harvest metadata from various Harvard online catalogs and create a new, topic-based collections.

  • A Virtual Collection constists of metadata only; records link to external digital objects
major aspects of virtual collections
Major Aspects of Virtual Collections
  • Harvesting: Initially supporting harvesting from HOLLIS, VIA and HGL
  • No additional cataloging necessary in source catalogs (HOLLIS, VIA, HGL)
  • Local Subject Vocabulary: Curator can create a controlled list of subject terms, distinct from any subjects in the harvested records.
  • Customization: Collection can customize appearance of the Web display with XSL and CSS stylesheets.
