Informationen for Curators
The expansion of the content is carried out in cooperation with the respective curators and collection directors as well as the Central Office for Scientific Collections. The Central Office for Scientific Collections is responsible for coordinating the presentation of the respective collection and the data it contains.
The Center for Sustainable Research Data Management integrates the information and data compiled by the Central Office for Scientific Collections into the collection portal FUNDus! and further develops the functionality according to requirements.
For each collection there is an introductory description, contact addresses and, if applicable, objects. On the level of the collection it is also possible to display sub-collections instead of objects, which in turn can contain their own objects (but no other sub-collections). For each collection, keywords can be assigned, which increase the findability of the collection.
How the collection items are displayed is determined individually for each collection:
- Title fields (max. 3)
- Sort by (max. 3 Felder)
- Field selection Basic view (overview page) also corresponds to the display of the search fields
- Formatting of the fields (italics for latin terms)
- Selection fields for the search
- Display of a feedback form
- Help text for the FAQ page
Accepted formats for images include jpg, png, tif and PDF. The images for the objects are delivered by an image server, which converts sizes and formats. It is important that the images can be uniquely assigned to the data. When naming the images, it is advantageous to avoid umlauts, special characters, spaces, etc.
Die Erweiterung des Inhalts erfolgt in Zusammenarbeit mit den jeweiligen Kuratoren und Sammlungsstellenleitern sowie der Zentralstelle für wissenschaftliche Sammlungen. Dabei übernimmt die Zentralstelle für wissenschafliche Sammlungen die Abstimmung bezüglich der Darstellung der jeweiligen Sammlung und der darin enthaltenen Daten.
For collections and areas there is a field in which general keywords can be assigned to improve the findability of the texts.
For single objects there is the possibility to define keywords as a hidden field (i.e. a field without label). These fields are included in the search index, but are not displayed on the interface.
If desired, a feedback form can be displayed under each collection item, allowing experts or committed laymen to send errors or additions for the object directly to the address provided. The address entered here does not have to be the same as the contact address.
Collection items that are of interest for a specific purpose can be marked accordingly by the heads of the collection and linked as a selection, for example for teaching purposes.
For each collection there is the possibility to display a link list in the right column, which for example contains references to publications or data publications.
