Curation Best Practices

The Content Administrators have agreed to best practices that outline techniques and methods for efficiently and effectively curating metadata in the caDSR, based on repeatable processes. 

  • caCORE:Best Practice Template
  • caCORE:Linking a Document or Other Resource Materials as caDSR Metadata

    caCORE:Use of Integer Qualifier Concept (C45255)

    titleNote: Change to Best Practice for System-Generated Definitions

    When creating a manually-curated definition, the system-generated definition does not need to be saved, and there is no need to notate the definition as "manually curated" or "system generated".

     Note: Some best practices apply to multiple administered items.
