Native Health Database Metadata Migration
The University of New Mexico’s (UNM) Health Sciences Library & Informatics Center (HSLIC) is responsible for the Native Health Database (https://hslic-nhd.health.unm.edu/), an indexed database containing 10,046 descriptions of resources related to the history (of) and health related topics focused on (predominantly) United States Indigenous populations, including Alaska Native communities. In order to sustain this resource, HSLIC staff and faculty have identified an immediate need to migrate the metadata from its current infrastructure and move it into a new database, using the Dublin Core metadata standard. Dublin Core is a formal standardized (ISO 15836) structure for describing resources. This project is the the beginning of a multi-phased approach to responsible collaboration between agencies (regionally, nationally, internationally) and source communities, with a particular emphasis on responsible sharing of health information resources that are mutually focused on the improvement of health outcomes among Indigenous populations.
