A new Cedar Apps features and fixes code push started in April with a focus on improvements to the Heritage App. We are extending the Community Map functionality, and continue to align Item fields with best practices standards (see links below).
Stay tuned for new web Documentation and PDF Guide in the coming months.
Best practices references:
- Federal Agencies Digital Guidelines Initiative (FADGI) – Technical Guidelines for Digitizing Cultural Heritage Materials
- Library of Congress – Recommended Formats Statement
- Bibliographic Center for Research, Collaborative Digitization Program – Digital Imaging Best Practices
- California Digital Library – Digital File Format Recommendations: Master Production Files
These standards should be used in conjunction with procedures for digitization, which include digitization specifications, file naming, metadata, and quality assurance.
