What’s In The Box? Assessing the potential usability of four decades of thesis and dissertation supplementary files
Steve Van Tuyl
Oregon State University, United States of America
This study evaluates the reusability of four decades of datasets deposited to an institutional repository. The extent to which shared datasets are reusable by researchers informs digital preservation practices. Results suggest that legacy data in our IR is likely generally unusable, with implications for the broader data sharing landscape.
Collaboration beyond code: Sprints for non-technical work
Heather Greer Klein
DuraSpace, United States of America
Code sprints rally the community to move open source software (OSS) forward. But what about tasks like event planning, documentation, and advocacy? This presentation will share how DuraSpace created the “dash” to bring the efficiency, camaraderie, and value of a sprint to OSS community coordination and non-technical work.
Can You Scan This for Me?: Making the Most of Patron Digitization Requests in the Archives
Darcy Pumphrey, Andrea Payant, Jennifer Duncan
Utah State University, United States of America
Three library units (Special Collections & Archives, Digital Initiatives, Cataloging & Metadata Services) collaborated to create a streamlined process to make patron-driven digitization requests available online. The result of their efforts is a workflow offering practical strategies for institutions of varying sizes and levels of access to technological resources.

This talk will highlight collaborative efforts to improve our workflows and lessons learned from moving ideas to action.
