Presentations
 
Collections in transition: A digital collections interface assessment amidst migrations
Meredith Hale, Louisa Trott, Laura Romans, Don Richards
University of Tennessee, United States of America
 
Improving access to digital collections is a moving target often complicated by additional factors like migrations. Through the formation of a committee and the input of users from survey responses and analytics, the University of Tennessee implemented changes to its digital collections pages at the home, collection, and item level.
 
 
Telling Our Stories: Assessing Reuse in Digital Libraries
Santi Thompson(1), Elizabeth Kelly(2), Genya O’Gara(3), Caroline Muglia(4), Ayla Stein(5), Liz Woolcott(6)
1: University of Houston, United States of America; 2: Loyola University New Orleans, United States of America; 3: Virtual Library of Virginia, United States of America; 4: University of Southern California, United States of America; 5: University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, United States of America; 6: Utah State University, United States of America
 
Traditional library analytics primarily address access statistics, which do not show how users utilize, transform, and remix digital library materials. Developing a Framework for Measuring Reuse of Digital Objects, an IMLS-funded project, conducted a needs assessment to determine key features of a future assessment toolkit that focuses on transformation.
 
 
Administrative, Archival, and Artistic: Broadening the Institution(al) Repository
Becky Thoms, Dylan Burns
Utah State University Libraries, United States of America
 
If the role of an institutional repository (IR) is to collect the scholarly and creative output of the institution’s faculty, staff, and students, where does that leave the institution’s (digital) archives? Librarians managing IRs are increasingly grappling with this issue as IRs grow and develop alongside other digital collections.
 
 
Collecting data for user-focused improvements to digital collections
Emily Lapworth, Su Kim Chung
University of Nevada, Las Vegas, United States of America
 
Various developments in the cultural heritage field have affected and evolved the way we digitize, describe, and present online digital collections to users. Are new approaches meeting user needs? This Snapshot will present a research design model for collecting data to inform user-focused improvements to digital archival and special collections.
 
 
Which Taonga first? Updating our Digitisation Selection Process and Plans
Jessica Moran
National Library of New Zealand Te Puna Mātauranga o Aotearoa
 
This snapshot talk will discuss the updating of The Alexander Turnbull Library's digitisation planning, prioritisation, and selection process. It will describe our attempt to transparently build our digital collections and the many (sometimes competing) interests we must balance when digitising a national heritage collection.
