RIMMF a Resource: Step-by-step

Search for Manifestation data, using the Entity Index

  1. IF your Manifestation search did not find a hit (possible match), or if you found a hit but the Manifestation data that you found is not a match, and is not a near match either, then search for Work data, using the Entity Index
    1. IF your Work search found a hit (possible match) for the work characteristics of your resource, check that it is a true match
    2. IF the Work data that you have found is not a true match:
        • Add Manifestation data, as needed
        • Create a new Work record
          • Add Work data, as needed
          • Link to a new Expression record
            • Add Expression data as needed
            • Go back to the automatically linked Manifestation record
              • Link to a new Item record
                • Add Item data, as needed
      1. Check the R-Tree to be sure you have picked up all possible relationships
      2. Done
    3. IF the Work data that you have found is a true match:
      1. Add any additional Work data, if you have any, and if you think it might be useful
      2. Find linked Expression data, using the 'Expression of Work' links in the Work record
      3. IF a linked Expression record is a true match:
        1. Add any additional Expression data to that Expression record, if you have any, and if you think it might be useful
        2. Link to a new Manifestation record, via the 'Manifestation of Expression' element, and add Manifestation data
          1. Link to a new Item record, and add Item data
        3. Check the R-Tree to be sure you have picked up all possible relationships
        4. Done
      4. IF all linked Expression records are not a true match:
        1. Clone one of the Expression records
        2. In the new Expression record, change/add Expression data, as needed
        3. Link to a new Manifestation record, via the 'Manifestation of Expression' element, and add Manifestation data
          1. Link to a new Item record, and add Item data
        4. Check the R-Tree to be sure you have picked up all possible relationships
        5. Done
  2. IF your Manifestation search found a hit (possible match) for the manifestation characteristics of your resource, check that it is a true match
    1. IF the Manifestation data that you have found is a true match:
      1. Add any additional Manifestation data, if you have any, and if you think it might be useful
      2. Link to a new Item record, and add Item data
      3. Check the R-Tree to be sure you have picked up all possible relationships
      4. Done
    2. IF the Manifestation data that you have found is not a match, but is a near match:
      1. Clone the near-match Manifestation record
      2. Change/add Manifestation data, as needed
      3. IF the clone Manifestation data can link to the same Expression data as the near-match record:
        1. Add a link via the 'Expression Manifested' element, to the same Expression record as the near-match record
        2. Go to the linked record for the Expression, via the 'Expression Manifested' element
          1. Add any additional Expression data, if you have any, and if you think it might be useful
          2. Go to the linked record for the Work, via the 'Work Expressed' element
            1. Add any additional Work data, if you have any, and if you think it might be useful
            2. Go to the linked record for the Manifestation
              1. Link to a new Item record, and add Item data
              2. Check the R-Tree to be sure you have picked up all possible relationships
              3. Done
      4. IF the clone Manifestation data cannot link to the same Expression data as the near-match record:
        1. Find the record for the Expression data that was linked to the near-match Manifestation record
        2. Clone the Expression record
          1. In the new Expression record, change/add Expression data, as needed
          2. Add a link to the clone Manifestation, via 'Manifestation of Expression'
          3. Add a link to the same Work as the clone Expression record, via the 'Work Expressed'
          4. Go to the linked Work record, via the 'Work Expressed' element
            1. Add any additional Work data, if you have any, and if you think it might be useful
              1. Link to a new Item record, and add Item data
              2. Check the R-Tree to be sure you have picked up all possible relationships
              3. Done
