Vargas-Betancourt, Margarita
2013 Meeting of the Society of Florida Archivists (SFA)


Abstract: Archives are no longer islands of records and collections; archives are part of a larger system of information retrieval and dissemination. Collaboration between archivists, librarians, researchers and the general public is crucial for sustainable collecting and access to information in analog and digital formats. This session will explore the ways that three diverse repositories in Florida are using collaboration to enhance the archives and enrich user experience. Margarita Vargas-Betancourt of University of Florida will discuss collaboration between librarians and faculty, and its effects on identifying relevant material for collections, the negotiation of donations, the enhancement of collections, and their dissemination. Brooke Wooldridge of the Digital Library of the Caribbean (dLOC) at Florida International University will showcase her work with the An Island Luminous online digital exhibit as a means to build new collaborations with archives and archivists in Haiti and the United States, serving as a model for future digital humanities collaborations that cut across time, geography and traditional disciplines. Finally, Natalie Baur of the University of Miami Libraries will discuss her work in collaborating with faculty and students on using their scholarly expertise in attributing metadata to digitized materials from the Cuban Heritage Collection’s numerous theater collections.
