Presentations
 
It Takes a Village: Open Source Software Models of Collaboration & Sustainability
Ann Baird Whiteside(1), Katherine Skinner(2), Laurie Gemmill Arp(3)
1: Harvard University, United States of America; 2: Educopia, United States of America; 3: LYRASIS, United States of America
 
Why are some programs successful? Why do some live on grants while some achieve sustainability? In 2017, the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) provided grant funding to enable LYRASIS and its partners to assess how open-source software programs serving cultural and scientific heritage organizations attain long-term sustainability.
 
 
Thanks for Sharing : A Case Study on Crowdsourcing Materials and Metadata for Digital Collections
Sarah Sweeney
Northeastern University, United States of America
 
When is crowdsourcing a useful tool for building a digital collection? This presentation will explore the experiences of two Northeastern University projects that used crowdsourcing to solicit materials and metadata from the public: The Art of the March (http://artofthemarch.boston) and Our Marathon (https://marathon.library.northeastern.edu).
 
 
The Larger Community: Leveraging widely used tools to build low-cost, low-risk solutions
Michael Durbin
University of Virginia Library, United States of America
 
Through the examination of how GitHub (with git and the Github API) served to provide a low-cost innovative solution to metadata record aggregation, validation and dissemination this presentation will focus on the broader issue of when and how to determine that oft-overlooked mainstream options are sometimes ideal solutions in libraries.
