Building a Digital Repository Program with Limited Resources

 
Whether you are just starting to create a digital repository or your institution already has a fully-developed program, Building a Digital Repository Program with Limited Resources provides strategies for building and maintaining a high-use, cohesive, and fiscally responsible repository with collections that showcase your institution. Author Abby Clobridge explains how to strategically select projects tied to your institution's goals, create processes and workflows designed to support a fully-functioning program, and creatively utilize existing resources. She discuses the benefits of taking a holistic approach to creating a digital repository program rather than focusing exclusively on individual projects. The book includes ready-to-use templates, worksheets, workshop exercises, and assessment tools.
