"True" complex objects
Book-like object (e.g. diary, scrapbook, yearbook, newsletter, postcard recto/verso)
Multiple, ordered images forming a multi-page object
note lack of page number / page title captions for navigation
Artifact captured in the round / from multiple angles (e.g. sculpture, artist’s book)
Short-term: multiple, ordered images showing views of a single artifact on a single axis; long-term: multiple axes, 3D object format
Photo proof sheet or slide set
Multiple, very similar images with essentially the same metadata
Here's an example of what are currently individual objects, that probably should be structured more like a slide set(?): https://calisphere.org/collections/26713/?rq=abstract
One or more audio and/or video files, one or more transcription files, and one or more images (e.g. of the subject)
Here's a good example of an oral history with a bunch of different types of files: http://ucispace.lib.uci.edu/handle/10575/8401. But not all oral histories have all of these files.
Album-like audio object with tracks*
Multiple, ordered audio files comprising a set. May also contain an image (album art, photo of musician, photo of digitized reel, etc.)
|Jane: you will first need to log into Nuxeo with Shibboleth credentials at https://nuxeo.cdlib.org. (Let me know if you do not have access.) Then you will be able to click directly on this URL – SCROLL DOWN to see all the tracks.|
Two or more ordered video files showing consecutive segments of the same content
|This may not be the best example, but here are a bunch of video excerpts but that are all from the same interview: http://ucistories.lib.uci.edu/interviews/randy-lewis-sally-peterson?excerpt=Sally%20Petersen%20and%20Randy%20Lewis%20-%20Students%20Streaking%20on%20Campus|
MPLP archival folder**
Multiple, multi-format files that have little or only folder-level (i.e. repeating) metadata.
|Click on "download PDF" at right. In this case, the objects have been bundled in a PDF, but they could equally be bundled as a "complex object." The idea is these are a bunch of scanned objects from a given folder, where no metadata work has been done at the item level. http://oac.cdlib.org/ark:/13030/k63778fj/?brand=oac4|
Object with transcription and/or translation(s) (could also apply to any of the above types)
Two or more files of different formats that are different versions of the same content
|The oral history (above) contains a few good examples of this.|
"Related item groups"
Multiple issues or volumes of a single publication
Two or more complex “book-like” objects
|Currently a complex object, but we're arguing it shouldn't be, and that we should have better, alternative support for relating these child-items: https://calisphere.org/item/f992b589-5f01-45f9-84ac-4e743bb8a2b1/|
Subject- or event-based “packages” of related items, e.g. a commencement video + program
Multiple, multi-format files with unique metadata, “aboutness”
|I'll have to find an example of this in the wild.|
Archival folder (with sufficiently described items)
Multiple, multi-format files representing objects that are intellectually unique and have disambiguating metadata.
|This is what UCI calls a "subcollection" (in this case, "biographical materials"). This is similar to an archival folder idea. In this case all of the items are well described with their own metadata, which is different than the "MPLP archival folder" in the previous table: http://ucispace.lib.uci.edu/handle/10575/1096/discover?fq=title:*|
