SAbstract

In order to preserve and increase access to valuable resources for the study of the Caribbean
and the advancement of Caribbean Studies, the Latin American and Caribbean Center at
Florida International University, in consortium with the University of Central Florida,
University of Florida and the University of the Virgin Islands, proposes a multifaceted and
collaborative international digital library project. The Digital Library of the Caribbean (dLOC)
intends to cross borders and build collaboration among diverse institutions to share resources in
a common space, thus expanding the range of Caribbean materials available to scholars,
students and citizens through enhanced electronic access in multilingual interfaces.

The Caribbean comprises a diverse mix of cultures, histories and peoples that share a common
space. This region illustrates trends in migration and nation-state building that are currently
taking place on a world scale, and is thus a significant focus of study for scholars and students
alike. Pan-Caribbean research will provide scholars, leaders, and citizens with the resources
necessary to build an understanding of issues central to our lives today and to construct
effective current policies and sound strategies for the future.

This digital library will comprise collections that examine the similarities and differences in
histories, cultures, languages, and governmental systems. The dLOC will be an umbrella for
digital projects and collections from and about the Caribbean that might exist in isolation at a
single institution, thus providing a critical mass of resources in a single space.

Building upon the success of a cooperative pilot project and the progress made at the first
dLOC Planning Meeting in July 2004 at the University of Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras, this project
proposes to use Federal funds to meet the following goals: 1) Increase access to Caribbean
research resources by digitizing and making available through centralized searching collections
of note, in English, French, and Spanish, including from the Archives Nationales d'Haiti,
Caribbean Community (CARICOM), Fundaci6n Global Desarrollo y Democracia (Dominican






Republic), National Library of Jamaica, and Universidad de Oriente (Venezuela); 2) Build
capacity by developing a multi-layered and comprehensive digitization training program for
international partners; 3) Advance Caribbean Studies by building an aggressive and engaging
outreach program that delivers these collections to scholars, to the classroom, and to the
general public; 4) Cultivate the development of new research initiatives among Caribbean
scholars by providing a supportive framework to disseminate this work; 5) Ensure
sustainability of the dLOC by consolidating the organizational framework, both in governance
and technical infrastructure.



* Status / Impact

The dLOC project continued to make substantial progress during the second year, October 1,
2006 to September 30, 2007. At the end of the year in review, there were 216, 992 pages
recorded in dLOC. This material represents the regions and topics identified in the proposal;
although not all the material was submitted by foreign partners. The growth in Caribbean
digital resources is significantly enhanced by this effort as these documents were not
previously available to researchers in this format; the current figure is double the number of
pages loaded one year ago. The strength of the dLOC technical support continues to ensure
considerable growth in the extent of digital resources, so that the proposed outputs identified
for the project are clearly attainable.
1. The establishment of the organizational framework for ensuring sustainability of the dLOC
was significantly advanced during the first nine months of year two through the appointment of
Kyle Rimkus as the project coordinator. The successful search for a project coordinator enabled
project directors to move forward with many of the initiatives identified for this year. His
subsequent resignation in August 2007 presented some setbacks. However, these expect to be
remedied promptly since recruitment of a new candidate has attracted several highly qualified
applicants.
a. The dLOC Scholarly Advisory Board met at the Caribbean Studies Association (CSA)
annual meeting in Salvador da Bahia, Brazil, May 2007. Although only a few of the scholars
were able to attend the meeting, many significant recommendations were made for moving the
project forward. Members identified several collections and persons to be targeted for
inclusion; suggested marketing strategies for promotion; and identified funding possibilities to
be pursued by partners and the dLOC organization.
b. The annual dLOC Executive Committee Meeting was held at the Association of Caribbean
University, Research and Institutional Libraries (ACURIL) in June, 2007. Representatives
from seven of nine institutional partners were present, including FIU, UCF, UF, UVI,
CARICOM, Haiti, and Venezuela. Due to misunderstanding about the location of the meeting,
the representative from the National Library of Jamaica missed the meeting but was quickly
updated by the project coordinator. FUNGLODE from the Dominican Republic and was not
represented. The members provided institutional reports, and the budget and management plan
for project year three (2007-2008) was discussed.
c. The new member application has been finalized and is now available in three languages.
Two new applications for membership have been received as follows:
Bibliotheque Haitienne des Pares du Saint Esprit the collection features historical volumes
focusing primarily on 18th Century French Colonial Saint-Domingue, the history of slavery in








University of South Florida in Tampa they have an emphasis on the Hispanic history of
Florida and the Caribbean region. Collection highlights include extensive runs of one
community and two industry newspapers, records for four mutual aid societies, dozens of oral
history interviews, personal and business papers of Cuban immigrants to Florida, and an
expansive lithographic art collection (primarily related to the cigar industry).

Two letters of interest from a commercial partner has also been received: one
from the Royal Gazette of Bermuda newspaper and the other from the Nouvelliste
of Haiti. The Royal Gazette is the primary publisher of Bermuda's news. It has expressed
interest in contributing a back run of its newspaper and predecessor titles as well as the
possibility of continuing issues. A demonstration project added selected historic issues of 3
titles: the Royal Gazette, the Bermuda Colonist, and the Bermuda Recorder.

The Nouvelliste is the Francophone newspaper of Haiti, representing the educated, business,
and ruling class of Haiti. Interest entails possible continuing contribution of new issues.

2. Capacity building training continued to provide increased contact with project partners and
help the process for attracting additional partners through introductions to other agencies within
the member countries and through requests for assistance as word of the availability of training
is spread among colleagues in the region.
* Follow-up training was provided to the National Archives of Haiti, and to CARICOM. This
was necessary for improving the quality of digitized images and for refining the workflow
process at these institutions.
* Intensive training was provided to the National Library of Jamaica. Equipment was delivered
to that institution during this visit. Additionally, trainers discussed the National Library's
challenge of limited bandwidth and the impact on transferring of documents to the University
of Florida for processing. A disk was provided with some of the scanned images and others
were promised to follow.
* Training for Universidad de Oriente in Venezuela has been planned, but not yet delivered
due to changes in dLOC-related personnel at Florida International University. This training will
be scheduled within the next six months. Equipment purchased for Venezuela will be delivered
during the scheduled visit.

3. The growth in the number of resources available online is greatly the result of the strength of
the technical infrastructure and technical support. This also demonstrates the significant
opportunities for sustaining the project:

a. The University of Florida met its obligations for development of the interface for accessing
the resources, for ensuring application of standards, for overall digital library development.It
has also begun an integration and redesign of its dLOC Toolkit to simplify digitization and
processing. Release is scheduled for the Venezuelan training mission in the first quarter of
2008.
b. The multi-lingual web site for dLOC was launched, see University of Florida staff
developed guidelines for usability testing to ensure ease of use and optimum navigation as
appropriate for each language. An assessment team consisting of representatives from U.S.
partner institutions has been identified to perform the evaluation and to recommend


CILV VUIIVVVUIL) UI1~ CILV IU*-(U VI IIUICI






enhancements to the interface as needed.
c. Technical documentation for training has been translated into French and Spanish.

4. Overview of resources collected in Project Year 2

a. CARICOM. 682 titles representing 1239 images have been added to dLOC.
Digitized audio and video was also received and is pending addition to the digital
library.
b. National Archives of Haiti. 1289 digitized images representing 195 titles have been added to
dLOC; more than 169 titles await processing. These images come from a collection of over
5,000 photographs, dating from 1918 to 1945. Site visits to the National Archives support the
reports of the considerable extent of resources available for digitization. Because the need for
support is so urgent, the Archives has engaged in simultaneous projects for scanning resources;
dLOC personnel will explore options for collaboration with the new projects for inclusion in
dLOC.
c. FUNGLODE. 9 titles representing 1239 digitized images have been added to dLOC. No
titles currently await processing. Contributions come from FUNGLODE's own publications
with a social science emphasis.
d. National Library of Jamaica. Following the delivery of training to staff in Jamaica, the
National Library opted for contributing documents directly to dLOC rather than through
harvesting. 30 digitized images have been added to dLOC.
e. Universidad del Oriente. This partner requested that they not receive training until early
2008. There is no material from them yet.
f. The U.S. partners have contributed content as follows:
a. University of Central Florida. Contributed 28 titles from the Bryant West Indies Collection
(4,708 images total). They will soon be harvestable to dLOC. Other titles in the collection are
under review. The Bryant Collection documents the history and culture of the Caribbean
b. University of Florida. Digitized content from its own Caribbean collections include 44,000
pages representing more than 200 titles, maps, newspapers and large journal runs constitute the
bulk of this material.
c. University of the Virgin Islands. 135 titles representing more than 2,500 images harvested
from UVI sites are in process. 542 funeral booklets representing more than 2,100 images were
also loaded. There are an additional 28 monograph titles representing approximately 400
images: a combination of UVI print publications from the UF collection, Agrifesta, and
general U.S. and British V.I. materials from UF and International Farming Systems
Collections. Discussions are continuing with the Caribbean Studies Association (CSA) to get
copyright permission to electronically deliver the complete archive of CSA papers through
dLOC.
g. Other notable additions to dLOC include:

a. 133 titles representing more than 15,000 images have been added, though not yet fully
integrated with dLOC in the form of Robinsonades. These texts enculturated the British child in






regards toward the Empire and the Caribbean empire in particular.
b. Following some of ACURILs development priorities, dLOC is now adding materials
relating to ecosystems, law and literature. The law collection is of special note. More than 100
years of pre-revolutionary Cuban law has been processed and is being loaded. A nearly full run
of British Caribbean (Federation and early Commonwealth) law is now being scanned or in
process. Selected resources in French and Dutch Caribbean law are also in process. When
complete, dLOC will comprise the largest collection of online Caribbean law. A subset of this
law collection will focus of women and development issues and is separately funded.
c. A gift in kind (hard copy on condition of digitization) from the New York University
Research Institute for the Study of Man contributed to efforts to build a newspaper
subcollection in dLOC. Newspapers from Dominica, Trinidad and Haiti have joined titles
already in dLOC from Bermuda, Haiti and Cuba. The NYU RISD titles advance
documentation of the West Indies Federation.
d. Additional gifts of loan and volunteer effort are in process of building a dLOC Art and
Artifacts subcollection as well. UF programmers are developing a tool that allow the digital
library to weave digital stills into a motion image lending to a 3D, "walk around" museum
experience. The 3D object will, when made available in dLOC, allow the user to click on the
rotating image and zoom into
object detail at high resolution.
e. UF continues to advance geographic referencing. Geographic and temporal tags are being
added that will eventual support "walking tour" like experiences in both space and time. 191
"titles" representing 563 images of old San Juan were loaded with geo-temporal tags. A future
map interface will make them "walkable".



* Adjustments to Project

The project has achieved most of the major objectives identified for the year with the initiation
of training and follow-up visits to foreign partners, the launching of the web page and the
employment of translators for refining French and Spanish interfaces. The resignation of the
project coordinator presented setbacks which effected momentum in many areas, since this
position is responsible for managing time lines and coordinating efforts of all participants.
We expect to make up for lost time quickly through a) the appointment of Gayle Williams who
has assumed the position of Latin American and Caribbean Studies Librarian at FIU and
dLOC co-Director, and b) Brooke Wooldridge, the new dLOC Project Coordinator. Ms.
Wooldridge is expected to begin her duties by mid-January 2008.
FUNGLODE has produced the least output of any of the partners. It will be useful in 2008 to
meet with them to see how this situation can be improved.
Grant monies expended. The budget plan for dLOC year 2 continues to incorporate a
comprehensive approach to the project to support its main objectives. It included personnel,
travel, training, equipment, digital image processing, web interface development, outreach and
evaluation. These components will help to build capacity, provide access to Caribbean
resources and deliver these materials to scholars, students and citizens. UCF's cost sharing
contribution fell slightly short in year 2 but they will add the difference to their cost share in
year 3.








' Exemplary Activities


Outreach to promote the dLOC project has been exemplary. The book: Caribbean Libraries in
the 21st Century which included an article on dLOC was released in June 2007. The book was
launched during ACURIL 2007 and is already available in over 70 libraries.

The project coordinator and technical director met with representatives of the proposed World
Digital Library project at the Library of Congress in Washington, DC. The group discussed the
common areas within the programs of both projects and identified options for partnering in the
future.

The project coordinator presented a session on dLOC at a workshop on Caribbean digital
libraries presented by UNESCO meeting in Trinidad, July 2007. The presentation elicited
considerable interest among the meeting participants because of the extent of the technical
accomplishments achieved in the dLOC project. Several institutions including the National
Library of Aruba, and Trinidad and Tobago's Ministry of Culture, expressed real interest in
continuing discussions with the project coordinator to identify options for partnerships.

A poster presentation was made at the 52nd annual SALALM meeting in Albuquerque, New
Mexico in April 2007, ACURIL 2007 in Puerto Rico and at the Caribbean Studies Association
Conference (CSA) 2007 in Salvador da Bahia, Brazil. The greatest benefit from this
participation was the visibility and awareness of the project both as a research resource and as a
site for accessing CSA documents. Conference papers from this Association represent a
portion of the proposed documents to be included in the dLOC collection. Necessary buy-in
from CSA members has been somewhat stalled during the past year, as the CSA leadership
changed hands and response to UVI's request for collaboration was not addressed. Presence at
the conference provided a forum for reaching out directly to CSA members to encourage
participation and to obtain feedback regarding research needs that may be addressed through
collections identified for inclusion in dLOC.

Statistical summary: 2,669 titles in 7,917 volumes/issues/parts representing 283,027 images
have been loaded to dLOC to date.



* Use of Technology

The dLOC Toolkit has undergone significant revisions and will be distributed to foreign
partners in 2008.
