Description

The institutional repository at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette allows users to upload content and associate it with a content model. Each content model has its own MODS metadata input form, which may be restrictive or insufficient for some users. We want to offer our users the choice to describe their scholarly material comprehensively, with appropriate and relevant metadata, and to ensure that desired metadata fields faithfully describe the material. Therefore, we have created our own IR Default MODS Form to be used by users regardless of content type. This presentation includes identifying the problem or challenge, deciding on relevant elements and attributes, researching XML Forms and Drupal Form API, and creating a default MODS form to be applicable to all our IR users.
