VRA Core, Luna Insights and Cornell University

Are you contemplating the VRA Core 4.0 metadata standard for processing a collection? In performing research for the Century 21 Exposition collection at The Seattle Public Library, I ran across some useful and informative resources by Margaret Webster of Cornell University on that very subject.

In 2007, Webster wrote an article and presented on Cornell’s experience using Luna Insights collection management software and employing VRA Core 4.0 elements to process some really unique faculty collections. Here are some links to resources and the citation to the article that piqued my interest:

* Collection ‘Beyond the Taj’ on Luna Commons

* Presentation by Webster ‘The metadata landscape: Cataloging Cultural Objects, VRA Core and our visual collections

* Article citation: Webster, M. (2007). E-grants + VRA Core 4.0 + XML = collaboration: Implementing VRA Core 4.0 in metadata workflows. Visual Resources Association Bulletin, 34(1), 111-119.
