Mary Mellon, Assistant Archivist, University Archives and Luke Menzies, Digital Preservation Assistant, Library Technologies
Recently the IU Libraries has seen major progress in managing born digital materials within some of the special collections units. The Born Digital Preservation Lab, established in January 2016, has been developing workflows to image and preserve obsolete media. The University Archives has been a strong partner in establishing end-to-end management of born digital materials, as they have revised accessioning and processing workflows, collaborated with the BDPL on pre-ingest, and have begun working on issues like backlog processing, providing access to researchers, and working with record creators to establish optimal acquisition of digital records.
This presentation will discuss how the BDPL and University Archives have been working on these larger challenges. We will also highlight a few current projects, including a collaboration between the BDPL and Media Services to image and provide access to a collection of obsolete PC games.
This presentation is part of the ongoing Digital Library Brown Bag Series. Follow and contribute to the presentations and discussions on twitter: #dlbb.
Programs will be held from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm EST in the Herman B Wells Library in Room E159 (Hazelbaker Hall in the Scholars' Commons).
