This session of the Funding to Preservation: A Digital Content Life Cycle Webinar Series is designed for smaller, under-resourced organizations who understand the need for digital preservation but are not sure how to begin creating daily workflows that incorporate accessioning, processing, and storing digital materials (both born-digital collections and files from digitization projects). The digital curation lifecycle will be viewed through a practical lens and the class will step through an end-to-end workflow for a hypothetical digital collection using simple,  open-source digital preservation tools.

Cookbooks are more than just collections of recipes. They are profound documents for cultural memory and identity. As part of the library’s Special Collections student engagement program at The Johns Hopkins University, cookbooks have proved to be the perfect seed to grow interest in using primary sources and to refresh collection development. Learn how a focus on cookery leads to more inclusive acquisitions and opportunities for student learning both in and of the classroom.

In the life cycle of digital content, shareable metadata is an important part of the process of both digitized and born-digital content to enable users to find the digital objects. Furthermore, metadata can be shared beyond the original environment to make the digital objects available to a larger audience, such as through aggregation services like the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA). In this Funding to Preservation: A Digital Content Life Cycle Series webinar, Megan Pearson, Project Coordinator for the Illinois Digital Heritage Hub (IDHH), the Illinois Hub for the DPLA, will share her experience with aggregating metadata and working with metadata created by other institutions, including standardization practices and methods used by the IDHH, and offer some thoughts on how to create shareable metadata across environments.

Presenter:
Megan Pearson is the Project Coordinator for the Illinois Digital Heritage Hub (IDHH), where she coordinates the administration, aggregation (including the metadata standardization and ingest process), content curation, and outreach and promotion for the IDHH. She joined the IDHH as Metadata Manager in 2020. While pursuing her MSLIS, Megan worked in the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign Library as Project Manager and Technical Graduate Assistant for the National Digital Newspaper Program. Prior to libraries, Megan studied early modern British literature and hand-press printing.
