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. 

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.
