Feedback form is now closed.
Library digital collections have the potential to move beyond access and serve as engaging platforms for enhancement, experimentation, and transformation. This panel will highlight a few such collections/projects that illustrate ways in which we are engaging our communities and creating data from materials at our respective University of California libraries. The panelists will discuss the merits of projects that scale vs. high-touch examples (and why boutique isn’t necessarily a dirty word) and will explore how smaller-scale projects enable us to model digital collection interactions and how exploratory work with collections data provide opportunities to demonstrate use cases for enhancing, re-mixing, and re-using our digital collections. The panel will close with a discussion on issues related to digitization selection, and suggest (for broader discussion) selection criteria that can facilitate more participatory, data-rich (or potentially data-rich) digital collections.
