Presentations
 
Identifying Blind Spots in Grant Writing
Nicole Finzer(1), Carolyn Caizzi(2)
1: Northwestern University Libraries; 2: Northwestern University Libraries
 
Northwestern University Libraries (NUL) received a grant to describe and make available online their Berkeley Folk Music Festival Archive, the largest digitization project to date at NUL. Come learn about how the project scope was impacted from proposal to commencement and how the project manager handled such changes.
 
 
MAPping New Territory: Using a new Metadata Application Profile to guide digital library development
Jenn Colt, Jasmine Burns
Cornell University Library, United States of America
 
Implementing a new Metadata Application Profile requires more than just drafting the MAP. Metadata creators, software developers, and UX designers all must contribute to the process of implementation. We’ll discuss how a new MAP guided the work of these collaborators, creating a better metadata ecosystem that made everyone’s job easier.
 
 
Project Soup: Bringing several small initiatives together to feed many users
Suzanne Wones
Harvard University, United States of America
 
While trying out new platforms and technologies the Harvard Library has often been left with orphan projects that have potential but no ongoing support. This year we merged a handful of such projects in order to create one new platform for delivering our publicly available digitized content.
 
 
Towards of a Praxis of Library Documentation
Rafia Mirza(1), Brett D Currier(2)
1: Southern Methodist University (SMU), United States of America; 2: Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, United States of America
 
During the last DLF Forum, we were asked why we were so passionate about documentation. We consider documentation to as much an ethical issue as a process issue. We will review core library and ethical principles to understand why documenting is critical and how memory institutions document is critical.

WITHDRAWN - Make New Programs (But Keep the Old): Leveraging Existing Resources for New Priorities
Perry Collins, Michael Szajewski
Ball State University, United States of America
 
When creating new programs, how do we leverage what we already have and hold on to strengths even as we move in new directions? This presentation will share Ball State’s efforts to tackle these questions by reimagining an existing unit as the foundation for a robust scholarly communications program.
