Introduction

Introduction

UNT Libraries’ strategies for

creating digital collections and services from datasets and born digital objects

serving users outside of formal education and research

Nathan Hall, UNT Libraries


Creating digital library services for a broad range of users

Creating digital library services for a broad range of users

Collection development for an environmental science digital library

UNT Libraries will bring together resources, audiences, and skills from different communities in order to combine research, teaching, and practice.

Collection development for an environmental science digital library

The Environmental Science Digital Library (ESDL) will host content contributed from institutional partners.

Text (books, articles, html, pdf)

Images

Video

Simulations

Applications

Datasets

Much of the ESDL content will be born digital.

Linking digital libraries to other data sources

Linking digital libraries to other data sources

EPA EnviroMapper for Water application shows areas with advisories regarding mercury and other toxins in fish.

State boundaries

Congressional districts

USGS compiled hydrological units.

We envision layering this data with environmental policy data to show correlations between environmental policy and environmental quality.

Hypothetical points of municipal battery recycling
