Next step: Share out with CCD reps and hold open calls in January, after digital collections proposal and reaction are done and settled. Team members attend open calls, as available.
Open call questions/guides:
Include narrative/context introducing purpose and future use of the document
Potential uses: starting point for what unique collections are and why important; why to invest in these areas; Alliance language reinforces local policy language
- Areas to make more succinct?
Digital Content Matters (Janet and Anneliese)
The group reviewed Jodi's notes from the Digital Library Federation before the meeting.
Some light changes to Dublin Core Best Practices
Collection-level and item-level data cleanup options
Devin commented that ContentDM may be tricky: testing OCLC Catcher functionality
From Jodi: Scope of initiative is wider than DPLA and Primo; project will result in clean metadata to be used currently or in the future
Forums planned for November 17, 18, and 21 to present plans and discuss them.
November 22: feedback survey released; results will need to be back by December 2 in order for the Digital Collections Working Group to review them on December 5.
Sean Lind is leaving CWU and has resigned from the DCWG. Make plans to replace his position immediately. The WG has suggested that they have sufficient metadata expertise, but could use someone who would be able to focus on the user testing part of this year”s work. The group found a possible candidate; Isaac will follow up with Jodi.
Strong interest and enthusiasm from Alliance teams and working groups to digging into issues and finding solutions; strong interest from Systems area for also looking at digital materials (need to make sure we interface with DCWG)
CCD rep forums: not a lot of feedback at forums; hopefully more in survey results; may need to reach out individually to institutions with larger archive and SPC collections (UW, UO, WSU, etc.) to make sure we have feedback from them; important to have wide array of institutions” feedbackSurvey currently open until Nov. 15; will be kept open until November 21.
