FIU Digital Project Guidelines and Help Materials

The internal standard operating procedures for FIU Libraries' digital collections

Definition

The BibID is a ten digit alphanumeric identifier used for SobekCM libraries which begins with at least two characters and ends with at least four numbers. Whatever you enter will be the beginning of the final BibID's, which also act as part of the ObjectID for the METS files.

If you enter a string less than 10 characters long, this will be the prefix. For example, entering 'FI008' will cause the first BibID assigned to be 'FI00800000', the second 'FI00800001', the third 'FI00800002', etc..

Entering a full BibID, such as 'FIDA0123' will break the item into two parts and compute each BibID from the provided BibID. For example, entering 'FIDA0123' will cause the first BibID assigned to be 'FIDA0123', the second 'FIDA0124', the third FIDA0125', etc..
