  2. Build at least one collection that contains at least 10 15 items; if you want, you can add more items to your collection or build more than one collection. Your items can be photographs, manuscripts, maps, newspapers, sound recordings, motion pictures, etc.
  3. Describe each item using at least 9 metadata elements. You will employ the following metadata guidelines to guide your metadata records creation process
  4. Create at least one exhibit, which is a guided tour through your items, complete with descriptive text and customized layouts, using the items you added to the collection.
  5. Using a simple page plugin, create an “About” page, which includes:
      • Description of your collection(s): what they are about, items included, copyright status of items, etc.
      • Description of your metadata creation: how you arrived at your decisions regarding what metadata fields to use and how to fill out those fields
