Metadata Editor


Provide a way for the user to enter information about the book they are digitizing:

  • Book title
  • Author
  • Publisher
  • Copyright / publication date
  • User defined notes

Undefined functionality

  • There was a discussion to support a subset of Dublin Core metadata, but there are no specifics at this moment.
  • It is conceivable that the Notes area can be used to extend metadata by supporting special syntax for custom key-value pairs.


Interaction Notes

  • The metadata editor is pre-populated with the values specified during the creation of the book project in the Dashboard (see Decapod Dashboard for more information).
    • This Metadata Editor may also contain fields that are not available during the book creation process in the Dashboard.
  • The metadata editor dialog is modal.
  • Error checking is performed on the date field to ensure proper formatting.
  • Book title is the only required field, since the other values may not be available (for really old, rare, or damaged works).
