episode number within a series

Written by DaveRice on Thursday, December 18, 2008

I've seen multiple methods of including an episode number in a PBCore record and am interested in which method to use. So far I've seen:

1. title = episodeNumber where titleType = "Episode"

2. identifier = episodeNumber where titleType = "Episode Number for {Series Title}"

3. extension = "asset_EpisodeNumber:"episodeNumber where extensionAuthorityUsed = "PBS PODS"

There may be other methods. Of the methods above, option 1 seems to have a higher vote, since both the Alliance for Community Media Server Standard's Working Group and Wisconsin Public Television both followed this method independently. But in option 1 if a program has a more formal episode title would there be any problem with two titles where titleType = "Episode". For example:

<pbcoreTitle><title>Curious George</title><titleType>Series</titleType></pbcoreTitle>

<pbcoreTitle><title>George Authors a Metadata Standard</title><titleType>Episode</titleType></pbcoreTitle>


“Common” PBCore Errors

Hello PBCore friends,

I've written a blog post on pbcore errors which may be of interest to the folks here. The focus is on errors which would impede interoperability. Feel free to post your comments, and/or tell me why these sorts of errors are not, in fact, problematic.

The examples on PBCore website are confusing to me. I am sure you are all shocked by this.

Identifying parent-child relationship

Written by Mary on Wednesday, December 10, 2008

Hola! Here's a scenario. Archive master is 16mm. Preservation master is Beta-SP. We want a DVD copy. We make that off the Beta, not off the 16mm. Where in the instantiation record for the DVD does it say what the instantiation parent of this instantiation is?
