COMR Metadata Creation Guide

Introduction

These guidelines supplement the current UNT Libraries’ standards for creating metadata, focusing specifically on items that belong to the College of Music Recordings collection. For items that do not belong in this collection, please see the full UNT Libraries Metadata Input Guidelines.

COMR Metadata Input Guidelines:

Note: all fields are required unless otherwise noted

Information for College of Music Recordings may be found on:

  • the recital program
  • top of the CD
  • back cover of the CD case

If there is a situation not covered on this page, use the links at the bottom of the field guidelines to find additional information

Title

General Information

  • All items must have a “Main Title” and at least one series title; some items may have additional titles
  • Always choose the appropriate title qualifier (main, series, added) from the controlled vocabulary

Main Titles

Guideline 1

Main titles have three separate elements in the form Type: Date - Name, Instrument

  • Type of recital, e.g., Doctoral (Lecture) Recital, Ensemble, Faculty Recital, Guest Recital
  • Date of recital in the form YYYY-MM-DD
  • Name of primary performer(s) and instrument or performing group(s)

Capitalize the type of recital and proper names (do not capitalize the instrument name)

Include all initial articles (a, an, the, der, etc.) in group names

Examples

  • Doctoral Recital: 2006-03-06 - Brad Bennight, harpsichord
  • Ensemble: 2007-02-08 - UNT Wind Symphony
  • Faculty Recital: 2006-11-08 - Eric M. Nestler, alto saxophone
  • Ensemble: 2007-04-12 - A Night of Percussion

Guideline 2

  • If there are multiple performers and/or performing groups listed, include each person or group with “and”
  • If there are multiple degree-seeing performances in a single recording, use an added title (see below)

Examples

  • Faculty Recital: 2007-01-26 - Linda Di Fiore, mezzo-soprano and Heejung Kang, piano

Series Titles

Guideline 1

  • Add the appropriate series title for the type of recital from the list at right (copy it exactly)
  • If the recital includes multiple groups, include separate series titles (e.g., Faculty Recitals and Guest Artist Recitals) rather than creating a concatenated version
  • If none of these titles is appropriate for the item, create a new title that matches the format of the others and contact the metadata administrators

Examples

  • Doctoral Recitals
  • Ensemble Concerts
  • Faculty Recitals
  • Guest Artist Recitals
  • Master’s Recitals
  • Senior Recitals

Added Titles

Guideline 1

If the recital has a title (printed on the program/information), include it in the record as an added title

Guideline 2

For Doctoral Lecture Recitals, include the lecture title as an added title

  • Use the lecture title written on the program or CD
  • Precede the title with “Lecture Recital:”
  • Capitalize the first word of the title and all other words except prepositions and articles
  • Separate main titles and subtitles with ‘space dash space’

Example 2

  • Lecture Recital: Marcel Mihalovici - A Critical Evaluation of His Solo and Chamber Works for Clarinet
  • Lecture Recital: Di/con[ver(gence/sions)] for Saxophone Quartet by David Dzubay - A Performance Analysis
  • Lecture Recital: An Analytical Study of Mily Alekseyevich Balakirev’s Musical Style in His Early Piano and Orchestra Works - “Grande Fantaisie on Russian Folk Songs” and “The First Piano Concerto Op. 1 in F-sharp Minor”

Guideline 3

If there are multiple degree-seeking performances in a single recording:

  • Use the performer seeking the higher degree as the main title
  • Include the secondary performer in an added title

Examples

  • Main: Doctoral Recital: 2006-02-03 - John Norine, Jr., conductor
  • Added: Master Recital: 2006-02-03 - Amy Wilson, conductor

Other Special Cases

Recital Series

If the recital is part of a series of related performances:

  • Include the title of the series as a serial title
  • Include the title of the specific performance as an added title

Examples

  • Serial: “Basically Brahms”: Music of Johannes Brahms (1833-1897)
  • Added: “Basically Brahms”: Music of Johannes Brahms (1833-1897), Concert One

Additional Information

Exceptions and Miscellany

General Information

  • Some videos (and perhaps other items) may not align exactly with the guidelines in this documentation, e.g.: interviews or promotional videos
  • A couple of specific things to keep in mind:
    • The record should always accurately describe the specific item
    • Information should be as clear as possible for users
    • Depending on the specific instance, some information may need to be omitted, added, or changed from the examples above in the interest of clarity and accuracy
  • Here are some specific situations and possible adjustments/considerations:

 

Exception

Changes

Example

A recording has multiple versions

If there are two extremely similar recordings (e.g., one from the perspective of the orchestra and one from the audience)

  • Add some designator to the title so that they aren’t identical
  • Clarify what is different in the content description so that a user can compare them in search results
  • Add a reciprocal relationship among the version(s) - when in doubt about “primary/secondary” use identifiers or ARKs to determine which “has version” and which “is version of”

Ensemble: 2013-10-02 - UNT Concert Orchestra #1

Concert Orchestra concert performed at the UNT College of Music Winspear Hall. This video is shot from the orchestra’s perspective.

Has version: Ensemble: 2013-10-02 - UNT Concert Orchestra #2, ark:/67531/metadc276247

If there are two recordings that have partially different content (e.g., an edited version or a recording that cut out part-way through)

  • Add some designator to the title of the edited version (e.g., [edit], [edited], [partial], etc.) and consider doing the same for the other (e.g., [original], [complete], etc.)
  • Include a statement in the content description about what is/isn’t included in each version vs. the other
  • Add a reciprocal relationship among the version(s); the fuller or original recording “has version” and the shorter or edited recording “is version of”

Ensemble: 2012-10-03 - UNT Concert Orchestra [edited]

Concert Orchestra concert performed at the UNT College of Music Winspear Hall. This version includes an interview with the conductor during the intermission.

Is version of: Ensemble: 2012-03-14 - UNT Concert Orchestra and Concert Choir [full], ark:/67531/metadc272227

A single recital is recorded in parts

If there are just two (or more) parts (e.g., one recording before intermission and one after)

  • Add some designator to the title to denote order
  • Consider adding information to the content description (optional if the content is all the same recital and the order is noted in the title)
  • If possible, information should reflect only the portion of the recital in the particular recording, e.g., composers/pieces
  • Add a reciprocal relationship among the parts(s)

Ensemble: 2014-02-05 - UNT Symphony Orchestra, Part 1

Second half of a Symphony Orchestra concert performed at the UNT College of Music Winspear Hall.

Has part: Ensemble: 2014-02-05 – UNT Symphony Orchestra, Part 2, ark:/67531/metadc406403

If the parts have different content (e.g., a lecture and a performance recorded separately, that are part of a continuous recital)

  • Add some designator to the title to clarify the content and to note order (if possible)
  • Make sure that all content-specific information – such as series titles, subjects, etc. – reflect only the part you are describing
  • Adjust the description to accurately describe the content
  • Add a reciprocal relationship among the parts(s)

Doctoral Recital: 2013-06-06 – Terri Sánchez, flute/alto flute/bass flute. Part 1, Lecture

Lecture presented at the UNT College of Music Voertman Hall in partial fulfillment of the Doctor of Musical Arts (DMA) degree; the lecture was followed by a recital performance that is not included in this recording.

Has part: Doctoral Recital: 2013-06-06 – Terri Sánchez, flute/alto flute/bass flute. Part 2, Recital, ark:/67531/metadc275822

A recording is not a recital

If the content of the recording is something other than the actual recital – e.g., promotional video, advertisement, interview, intermission material, etc. – all information in the record should be adjusted based on the content:

  • A title should be created in [brackets]
  • Creators/contributors should reflect people involved in the creation/content of the recording (e.g., interviewee)
  • The description should briefly explain [1] what the recording is, [2] what is included, [3] its purpose, if known
  • Subjects should be chosen to help users find the content of the recording (and may be keywords rather than thesaurus terms); for interviews, include named persons
  • Relations should describe any relationship that the recording has to other items – e.g., an advertisement references a performance – but should not be used when they don’t apply (e.g., a video interview does not have a format relationship with the audio recording for the recital)

[Interview with Andy Narell Regarding Global Rhythms Project]

Interview with Jake Heggie, the composer of the Ahab Symphony, which was first performed during a concert on April 24, 2013 at the UNT College of Music Winspear Hall. It originally aired during the concert’s intermission.
