To use the Metadata Checker, you need to:
a) have OAI-PMH configured in your content management system
b) know your OAI base URL (or, for hosted collections, your host’s OAI base URL)
If you’re a current Recollection Wisconsin Content Partner, you can find your OAI base URL in this spreadsheet.

Provide a valid OAI-PMH base URL, then choose a set to identify records that are missing one or more of Recollection Wisconsin’s required or recommended fields.
Required fields: Rights, Subject, Title, Type

DC Mapping Checker
Provide a valid OAI-PMH base URL, then choose a set to get a table of simple Dublin Core fields. This tool is a way to see what kinds of data are mapped to each field – to catch mapping errors, or suggest ways to clean up data.
DC Facet Viewer
Provide a valid OAI-PMH base URL, then choose a set and a simple Dublin Core field to get a list of terms mapped to that field, ordered by frequency. This tool helps determine places where metadata could be corrected or streamlined, such as two similar terms that could be combined into one.
