Organizing and Growing Digital Collections: Digital Library of the Caribbean
Themes, Partners and Projects 2010 ACURIL Conference (panel discussion)


From its inception, the Digital Library of the Caribbean (dLOC) placed a strategic focus on
ensuring that this diversified digitization project would follow the latest in evidence-based
standards. Creating a community to share information and new standards in this emerging field
would ensure that digitization projects across the dLOC member institutions would meet the
highest of the international digitization community standards. In addition, our projects build on
the strengths of individual member institutions.

In this panel, we will discuss the evolution of various strategies for the organization and
representation of information based on the latest in evidence-based practices.

Laurie Taylor will discuss the development of the Caribbean Newspaper Digital Library,
a new project based upon the success of both the Digital Library of the Caribbean and the
Florida Newspaper Digital Library.

Judith Rogers will address the need to build thematic collections to ensure the discovery
of collections.

Brooke Wooldridge will address the newly emerging Protecting Haitian Patrimony
Initiative and the work that is being done both in Haiti and abroad.

All of the panelists will focus on the importance of surveying best practices when developing
and executing project plans.
