Collaborative Digitization Interest Group members,

For the get-together tomorrow (Monday) morning, please see the directions below and bring whatever you need to stay comfortable, since we may well sit outside! It's a lovely place to sit and enjoy the expansive views.

Collaborative Digitization Interest Group members,

Directions to Samovar Tea Lounge (Yerba Buena Gardens):
Facing Moscone Center North on Howard St., look for the vertical post sign that says "YERBA BUENA GARDENS" at the top (see attached photo). It points up some outside stairs at the left of the Moscone Center North entrance that go to "Upper Terrace Cafes & Esplanade". Go up those stairs and turn to the right to Samovar Tea. I'll make a folded paper tent sign to help you know you have found the group.

See you at 9:00 a.m. for good tea, food, and conversation!

Sandra

Event Collaborative Digitization Interest Group -- Get-together at ALA Annual 2015 in San Francisco

by Sandra McIntyre on Wed, Jun 24, 2015 at 07:49 am

Collaborative Digitization Interest Group members,

At past ALA Conferences, the time slot of 4:30-5:30 on Saturday has been somewhat problematic for our group – presentations have been rushed, the time slot competes with related sessions, and it has been tricky for many to get to evening events. So we are going to try out some new formats!

  • You are invited to a Collaborative Digitization Get-together at the ALA Annual Conference. We will meet on Monday, 6/29, at 9:00-10:30 a.m. at the Samovar Tea Lounge (Yerba Buena Gardens), 730 Howard Street, which is directly across from the Moscone Center. It has a light menu with tea pairings. Please join us for conversation and get to know your interest group colleagues!
  • We will hold a Summer Update Webinar Series on collaborative digitization, with project updates and presentations in July and August. We will schedule several one-hour sessions on Adobe Connect, with probably two reports in each webinar, about two weeks apart from each other, starting in mid-July. An additional message will follow about this with a call for topics. Please consider sharing an update about your digital project.

Please join us for either or both formats. I look forward to hearing about your digital projects!

Sandra

Collaborative Digitization Interest Group meeting at ALA Mid-winter

Join us for the Collaborative Digitization Interest Group meeting at ALA Mid-winter! We are meeting on Saturday, January 31, 2015, 4:30-5:30 p.m. in McCormick Place W175a. Come hear these presentations about interesting projects by digital collaboratives around the country:

1.     Current Recommendations from MWDL Geospatial Discovery Task Force
Liz Woolcott, Digital Discovery Librarian, Utah State University
Jeremy Myntti, Head, Cataloging and Metadata Services, University of Utah
Sandra McIntyre, Director, Mountain West Digital Library

The Mountain West Digital Library’s Geospatial Discovery Task Force convened in 2013 to develop common practices for all MWDL partners in geospatial discovery for digital collections. Thirty-nine contributors from around the country investigated a variety of geospatial controlled vocabularies, compared current metadata practices, and evaluated geospatial tools and interfaces. Sandra, Jeremy, and Liz will share the next steps and recommended best practices for recording geospatial information in the digital library environment.

2.     Getting It Right on Rights
Amy Rudersdorf, Assistant Content Director, Digital Public Library of America

Amy will provide a quick update on the Digital Public Library of America’s “Getting It Right on Rights” project. This is a Knight Foundation-funded initiative to develop human friendly and machine actionable rights, licensing, and public domain statements that can be used by cultural heritage organizations to better communicate the status of the materials in their digital collections and open up the possibilities for appropriate sharing of this rich content.

3.     Teaching Digital Collection Building Skills
Amy Rudersdorf, Assistant Content Director, Digital Public Library of America
Anna Fahey-Flynn, Collaborative Services Manager, Boston Public Library
Sandra McIntyre, Director, Mountain West Digital Library

The Digital Public Library of America’s Public Library Partnerships Project, funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, works with four state and regional digital libraries to provide digital skills training for public librarians and connect them sustainably with state and regional resources for digitizing, describing, and exhibiting their cultural heritage content.  In this brief presentation, Amy, Anna, and Sandra will give an overview of this project and its progress. They will describe the collaborative curriculum development and implementation process and share lessons learned so far. For additional information, contact Franky Abbott, PLPP Project Manager, ACLS Public Fellow, at franky@dp.la.

4.     Empire State Digital Network
Kerri Willette, ESDN Manager

Empire State Digital Network was announced as a Digital Public Library of America service hub in October 2013. Since then, ESDN staff has been laying the groundwork to aggregate content from seven New York state and regional digital collection projects. Our first scheduled contribution to DPLA is slated for early 2015. ESDN will begin accepting contributions from additional state partners in Spring 2015. 

Please share this information with other colleagues. We hope to see you there!
