Presentation Type

Lightning Talk

Program Description

The University of Idaho Law Library houses a collection of ~10,000 (and growing) digital records and briefs from the Idaho State Supreme Court, but this unique resource had a difficult time finding a user and staff friendly home. This lightning talk will address how our library has adjusted the book gallery feature of Digital Commons (DC) to house this collection in an attractive, accessible manner. Attendees will learn about our successful and less successful tweaks to the DC framework and will be encouraged to adapt our experience to their own unusual collections.
