From Concept to Reality: An overview of the University of Wisconsin Digital CollectionsMelissa Mclimans

slide2
What we do:
  • Create digital resources to support instruction and research
  • Build quality digital resources from:
    • rare, fragile, non-circulating, and high-use library and archival materials
    • materials not previously digitized nor available on the Internet
    • books, journals, archival collections, slides, photos, art illustrations, maps, audio, and video
  • Develop tools that facilitate search, retrieval, and navigation of our digital resources
  • Provide stable, scalable, and sustainable technology platforms for long-term management of digital resources
slide3
The UWDCC is:
  • 6 full time and 10-15 student staff
  • Librarians, technology specialists, and other information professionals
  • located in Memorial Library on

Madison campus

Two administrative bodies oversee

and fund our projects:

  • UW System
  • UW-Madison Libraries
slide4
A little history...

First text project was John Nolen’s Madison : a model city

First multi-media project was AfricaFocus

3000 slides, 500 photographs, and 50 hours of sounds from forty-five different countries

slide5
We have:
  • 32000 audio minutes
  • Well over 5000 finding aids
  • 92000 images
  • 2.1 million pages of text
slide6
UW Digital Collections
  • strengths include: area studies, decorative arts, ecology, literature, history, music, natural resources, science, social sciences, the State of Wisconsin, and the University of Wisconsin.
  • Over 400 completed projects
  • Recently approved projects
slide7
Institutional repository ([email protected])
  • Store, index, distribute, and preserve digital materials
  • Deposited directly by UW faculty or staff
  • Research papers, pre-prints, datasets, photographs, videos, learning objects, theses, student projects, conference papers
  • Content distributed through a searchable Web interface, receive persistent URLs
  • For more information: http://uwdcc.library.wisc.edu/minds/
slide8
Where does the content come from?
  • UW Madison -- Libraries and Faculty
    • Playing House
    • Ainu Komonjo Volumes
slide9
UW System Libraries
    • The Ku Klux Klan in Northwestern Wisconsin, circa 1915-1950
    • UW-La Crosse Historic Steamboat Photograph collection
slide10
Public Libraries, Museums and Historical Societies
    • World War II Veterans of Mount Horeb
    • Kenosha County History: Images and Texts, 1830s-1940s
slide11
Projects that meet these criteria are most likely to be approved:
  • support instruction or research needs
  • do not circulate, e.g. rare books, materials from Special Collections
  • enhance an existing digital collection
  • are unique, e.g. not previously digitized nor available online in any format
  • high use, regularly requested by UW faculty or students
  • are distinctive and have potential for academic use and general education interest (K-12)
slide12
The Process for submitting a proposal

1. Proposals are submitted with our simple web form found at: http://uwdcc.library.wisc.edu/forms/submitProposal.shtml

2. Our team will assesses project and meets with content providers to discuss project details.

3. We will present the proposal to a committee, who will accept or decline the proposal.

4. Once approved, we will work together to create a Memorandum of Understanding that fully describes the project.

5. Work begins.

slide13
A quick note about our project types
    • Efacs = Electronic Facsimile = Pageturner = TEXT
      • We do the metadata and scanning
    • Mmbib = Multi Media, Bibliographic = IMAGES
      • Content provider is the subject specialist
      • Content provider does the metdata
      • We do the scanning
slide15
Value of digitization
  • Access
    • Google
    • catalog records, including Forward
    • and finding aids

2. Preservation

  • Back-up TIFF images, store offsite, committed to migrating in the future
slide16
