Use this easy to use template to create descriptions for your collection.
Please submit your descriptions or metadata as a spreadsheet.
Tips for cleaning your data before submission:
Each column should have one piece of data
|Topic subject||Geographic subject||Start date||End date|
|Baseball; United States||1999-2013|
|Mathematics; Brazil||1933-12-01 to 1933-12-15|
Use consistent terms and formats. Controlled vocabularies are a great source.
Identify Access Restrictions
Everything in the CDR is public by default. To request restricted access to some or all of your materials, 1) identifying which of your materials need special restrictions, then 2) determine what level of restriction is needed.
Access restriction options:
Unpublished: No public access.
Embargo: Information about an object is public. Object is restricted for a specified period of time.
Metadata only: Information about an object is public, but not the object.
Authenticated: Freely available to anyone with a UNC login.
