Developing a digital project is a multifaceted process. There are many factors to consider such as content selection, needs assessment, financial planning including grant planning, copyright research, data curation, digitization, metadata, text encoding, technical options for storage and access, and so on. Members of the Digital Collections Services department can provide guidance and support in any or all of these areas.
We encourage you to review an extensive checklist of issues to consider when planning a digital project, and consult various in-person or self-directed training opportunities offered at Indiana University.
If you are interested in developing a digital project, and you would like more information or an initial consultation, please contact Michelle Dalmau, Head of Digital Collections Services. We also offer digital project planning consultation as part of the Scholars’ Commons Consulting Services.
