Adopt, Migrate, Launch; Now What? Using Digital Collections to Build Community

Why do we publish digital collections?

To preserve and showcase open access archival materials that deserve a wider audience? To build relationships with peers and create opportunities for collaboration and learning? Or perhaps to build stronger communities around the shared history and sense of place that our collections celebrate?

Whatever your drivers, the journey is the same; the adoption of the right platform, the migration of your assets and metadata, and the site design that will bring your special collections to life. But then what? Having launched your digital showcase, how do you build a community around your collections?

In this session, we’ll explore archives that have already considered these questions and examine how they have used technology to broaden their reach and create multi-dimensional research experiences.

We’ll consider how culturally significant materials can be used to build stronger relationships, both internally and externally, and evaluate ways of amplifying the impact of your digital archives to ensure these materials can be accessed and enjoyed by new, global, research communities.

Join Jessica Kowalski as she traces the digital archival journey, from adoption, through migration and launch, and into the “now what?”
