Conor Caseycmcasey@uw.edu“Start Where You Are. Use What You Have. Do What You Can”: Enhancing Access to Collections Employing Existing Tools and Resources

Format: Traditional Session

Abstract: Enhancing access to collections is central to the archival enterprise. Yet, when confronted with the realities of existing and growing backlogs, increasing description to legacy collections may seem a daunting task.
This session details projects that have employed digitization and format migration of legacy discovery tools to create new workflows, employing existing resources to improve description and discovery of collections.


Outcomes: Awareness of existing tools, models, and workflows for digitizing or migrating formats of legacy discovery tools and making them available online. Identification of colleagues and institutions who have used these tools and can serve as a resource for similar projects. Emphasizing that many of these projects can be done using existing tools and infrastructures and can be done by varying levels of skills including students, volunteers, and professionals.
