Partners
million pages of Caribbean research materials are online and
freely accessible with only an internet connection. In 2009, the 1193,000 Page Views
site had over six million page views. dLOC also makes a targeted I per Month
effort to train educators how to use the resources in the classroom. II(Jan. to July 2010 Average)
In addition, dLOC not only provides access to the resources but
1.5 Million Pages of
also trains local partner institutions to digitize resources for

PROJECT OVERVIEW

New Search Options


Now that dLOC has over one million pages of content, the search has been re-optimized for
improved ease and results...

Home Page: From the home page, your basic search will access the bibliographic citation
information of the items in dLOC and return your results very quickly.

Map Search: If you are looking for items with discrete geographic locations, you can take
advantage of the new map search. Just click to make a box around a search area and hit
search. You will receive results from any item with longitude and latitude in the metadata.

newspapers in your search by clicking the check box below the search bar. Type in the
search term and wait while dLOC looks through all of the full text files. You will receive
results that include the term either in the citation or the full text. If the term is in the full text,
the pages will appear in the "matching tiles" box on the top left of the screen.

Faceted Searching: Once you have completed any search, you will have the option to
expand or narrow your results by selecting the related search terms in the box to your left.
Options include finding items by the same publisher, in the same geographic area, with the
same subj ect terms and many more. Since dLOC partners use both standard and local subj ect
terms, this can be an especially useful way to find new materials!

NEW COLLABORATIONS


Caribbean Newspaper Digital Library

The Caribbean Newspaper Digital Library received $440,000 in funding from the US
Department of Education Technological Innovation and Cooperation for Foreign Information
Access, to support the ongoing development of Caribbean research resources in serial form, such
as newspapers, journals and magazines. dLOC is working with partner institutions and
publishers to secure permissions to distribute publications still under copyright protection. This
funding will also allow us to develop new tools to support online submission of serial
publications from proj ect partners.

dLOC Welcomes Five New Members


It is always exciting to have new members join dLOC. As
members, these libraries will select items from their collections
available to researchers all over the world in the collaborative
online website while ensuring long term digital preservation. In
addition, these collections will be accessible directly beside
related collections of Caribbean content. The individual
members will also benefit from the promotion and awareness of
the larger dLOC proj ect.

The Protecting Haitian Patrimony Initiative

In the wake of the tragic January 12, 2010, earthquake in Haiti, dLOC's ~ ~
relationships in the region enabled the project to play a key role in
providing assistance for the Haitian libraries and archives. The Protecting
Haitian Patrimony Initiative is working to facilitate communication,
coordinate in-kind donations and raise money for the preservation of the at-
risk library and archival collections in Haiti.

In the first six months after the earthquake, the Initiative directly secured
over $9,000 in financial donations with support from additional
partnerships in the US and abroad, as well as $30,000 in in-kind donations
with support from the FIU College of Business and the Society of Florida
Archivists. The project has also shared information and advocated for the
needs of the partner institutions at six academic conferences. The Initiative
will continue to provide assistance and support for the libraries and
archives through dLOC's on-going partnerships.

t 4 GLOBAL RESOURCES NETWORK
Formal collaborations with the Center for Research Libraries
Collaborative Initiative for French North American Libraries a t
(CIFNAL) and MANIOC, the University of the Antilles-
Guyane's digital library, will enable these groups to work together to improve and increase
electronic access to francophone documents located in the French Caribbean or outside of the
French Caribbean with a focus on this region. CIFNAL members will bring additional linguistic
and cultural assets to help dLOC reach out to new French-speaking partners and help make
connections to researchers in North America. Manioc's digital library provides access to digital
objects related to the Caribbean, Amazon and the Guyana Plateau and serves as an excellent
partner to develop new proj ects with dLOC. Please contact Matthew Loving
(matlovi@uffib.ufl. edu), Romance Languages Librarian at the University of Florida Smathers
Library and the dLOC/CIFNAL proj ect coordinator, for more information.

Teacher Training Outreach

dLOC also has a strong impact in Florida through k-12 teacher training workshops. In
collaboration with the Title VI designated National Resource Centers at Florida International
University and the University of Florida, dLOC delivered two workshops titled "Teaching
Caribbean Diversity." These workshops, designed by Mlary Risner of the UF Center for Latin
American Studies, link electronic resources, expert lectures and collaborative group work to
encourage teachers to tie the Caribbean into their classrooms. In addition, after the earthquake in
Haiti, FIU graduate student, Adam Silvia presented "Haiti's History" highlighting dLOC
resources at the Miami Dade Social Studies Conference.

More than 20 lesson plans are available online at www.dloc.com/teach.

Please contact dloc~iflu.edu if you have lesson plans you are willing to share.


GOVERNANCE


Executive Board Meeting

The dLOC Executive Board met on June 10, 2010, in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic,
during the 40th annual conference of the Association of Caribbean University Research and
Institutional Libraries. During the first meeting of the newly elected Executive Board, seven
voting members and three non-voting members discussed governance, collection development,
new technical features, metadata standards, funding and new strategies for communication and
publicity.

Scholarly Advisory Board

The Scholarly Advisory Board, made up of academics and professionals in the fields of
Caribbean Studies and Digital Libraries, provides guidance on collection development, collection
accessibility, and technical issues. Restricted travel funding made it difficult for Scholarly
Advisory Board members to meet this year at the Caribbean Studies Association conference.


Recent exemplary work of two board members merits special notice. Leah Rosenberg has
played a pivotal role in the development of Caribbean literary collections. Chantalle Verna has
played an active role in the development of both the dLOC Haitian collections and the Protecting
Haitian Patrimony Initiative after the January 12, 2010, earthquake. dLOC will issue a new call
for members of the Scholarly Advisory Board in the spring of 201 1.

Currently, over 1.5 million pages of Caribbean research materials are online and freely accessible with only an internet connection. As of August 2010, the site had over six million page views. dLOC continues to actively support the t echnical training of educators across the US and facilitates their use of dLOC resources in the classroom. In addition, dLOC not only provides access to resources but also trains local partner institution s in the areas of preservation, digitization, and metadata creation. The robust and sophisticated technolo gical infrastructure that supports dLOC continues to develop a variety of new and innovative features that directly benefit you as a dLOC user Create a B ookshelf & More While you do not have to register to search dLOC registering for a free account allows you to : Create a bookshelf for your research or your class and share it with colleagues or your students via email or by posting the link on your blog Save an item to your bookshelf and add comments or notes to the item that only you will see Save a search or browse to your favorite searches so you can reference the results later Share an item through a variety of popular channels, including Facebook, Twitter, DIGG, StumbleUpon, Yahoo, Yahoo Buzz, Google Bookmarks, Browser favorites and others Improve your efficiency and m anage your bookshelves and saved searches through the mydLOC home page P ROJECT U PDATE N EW T OOLS AND T ECHNOLOGIES Over 20 Institutional Partners 93,000 Page View s per Month 1.5 Million Pages of Content

N ew S earch O ptions Now that dLOC proudly boasts over one million pages of content, the search function has been re optimized for improved ease and results. For example: Home Page: From the home page, the basic search now allows you to access bibliographic citation information of the items in dLOC and receive results in record time Map Search: If you are looking for items with discrete geographic locations, you can now take advantage of the new map search. Just a few click s allow you to highlight your specific geographic area of interest, and once you click search, y ou will receive results for all item s with the corresponding longitude and latitude noted in the metadata Advanced Search: If your basic search returns too many results to easily and efficiently organize the advanced search feature will allow you to restrict your search terms by categories such as title, author, subject keyword, country and more. Full Text Search: If you would like to search through the full text for a specific word or phrase, simply click on the text search tab I f you would like to include the newspapers in your search click the check box below the search bar and then t ype in the search term and wait while dLOC searches each full text file for you In seconds, y ou will receive results that include the term either in the citation or the full text. If the term is found in the full text, all pages with that term appear in at the top left of the screen. Faceted Searching : Upon completion of a search, users have the option to expand or narrow the results by selecting the related search terms in the box to the left. Options for faceted searching in clude but are not limited to, finding items by the same publisher and finding items related to the same geographic area or with the same subject keywords. Since dLOC partners use both standard and local subject keywords this can be an especially useful way to locate new materials!

categories such as title, author, subject keyword, country and more.

Full Text Search: If you would like to search through the full text for a specific word or
phrase, simply click on the text search tab. If you would like to include the newspapers in
your search, click the check box below the search bar and then type in the search term and
wait while dLOC searches each full text file for you. In seconds, you will receive results that

narrow the results by selecting the related search terms in the box to the left. Options for
faceted searching include, but are not limited to, finding items by the same publisher and
finding items related to the same geographic area or with the same subject keywords. Since
dLOC partners use both standard and local subject keywords, this can be an especially useful
way to locate new materials!

The Protecting Haitian Patrimony Initiative

In the wake of the tragic January 12, 2010, earthquake in Haiti, dLOC's
strong relationships in the region enabled the project to play a key role in
providing assistance for the Haitian libraries and archives. Nearly one year
later, The Protecting Haitian Patrimony Initiative continues to work to
facilitate communication, coordinate in-kind donations and raise money for
the preservation of at-risk library and archival collections in Haiti.

Within the first six months, the Initiative directly secured over $9,000 in
financial donations and support from additional partnerships in the US and
abroad, as well as a $30,000 in-kind donationfrom the FIU College of
Business and the Society ofFlorida Archivists. The project has also shared
information and advocated for the needs of the partner institutions at six
academic conferences in the US and abroad. The Initiative is proud to be
able to continue to provide assistance and support for libraries and archives
through dLOC's on-going partnerships.
