This week’s readings made me wonder what happens when a system needs to be upgraded or transferred to a new system. Are the systems compatible with one another? If a small organization had an outdated system of information, would they be able to easily switch to the latest and greatest, or would they have to start from scratch?
For my tech question, how specific should we be when filling out the “subject” section of Dublin Core? For example, I have labeled my images with both Carnival and Mardi Gras, but for the purpose of my archive they are the same thing. I am following what other institutions have done, but their collections are vastly more broad than what I am doing.
