Summary
Archives Online at IU, a service of the Digital Library Program in collaboration with the EAD (Encoded Archival Description) Working Group, contains guides to archival collections from units across IU Bloomington and is open to contributions from other IU campuses. A growing percentage of these guides include links to digital images of items from the collections, and we are working to expand the number of digital collections available through Archives Online in a variety of ways.
In this brown bag, I will provide a brief history of Archives Online and an introduction to its contents and functionality. We'll look at some of the new functionality currently under development, including the presentation of digitized collections at the folder-level, instead of the more usual item-level, and we'll discuss how Archives Online is working to use patron requests for digitization to build digital collections. Subject librarians with responsibilities for their own special collections are particularly welcome.
