Digital archive project mini-toolkit: Home


Here you'll find the supporting documentation for my presentation at Internet Librarian 2018: "Building a Digital Archive from Scratch." From the conference program:

A chance conversation with a grad student in 2017 led to a partnership in building a digital archive of video interviews, transcripts, and still images designed to fill an important gap in military policy research. The team started small, and a willing librarian quickly found himself in deep waters, tasked with designing a full project plan, including ingestion workflows, a metadata schema, and an Omeka exhibit. This presentation maps the project from its inception to the present and highlights valuable resources collected from far-flung sources to provide a template for librarians interested in facilitating similar digital humanities projects.

Please be free with any questions, comments, or suggestions; you'll see my contact information to the right.
