DESCRIPTION: Digital archivists from the Universities of Virginia, Hull (UK), Stanford, and Yale completed the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation-funded project: Born-Digital Collections: An Inter-Institutional Model for Stewardship (AIMS) last year. The AIMS partners developed a common framework for managing born digital materials within a collecting repository based on their work processing “hybrid” collections of both paper and digital materials. The digital archivists will present an overview of the AIMS project including some brief case studies, tool evaluations, and workflows, as well as the framework they developed to address collection development, accessioning, arrangement and description, and discovery and access. More information about AIMS can be found at: http://www2.lib.virginia.edu/aims/
