First-Time Digital Collection Building: How to Manage Time, Resources, and Expectations

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The goal of this panel is to bring together a group of librarians -- panelists and audience members -- who have created (or are looking towards creating) the first digital collections at their institution. Our three panelists have all been working on such projects over the last year. In addition to sharing the goals and priorities that motivated their institutions to start supporting digital collections, panelists will share their strategies, workflows, resource allocation decisions, successes, and lessons learned as a way of helping the larger community realize best practices for starting up support of digital collections. Attendees will be invited to give feedback on the strategies described by our panelists and to ask questions which could inform their own work.
