Description

Frustrated by the limitations and high overhead of traditional digital repository platforms, librarians at the University of Idaho Library have developed an agile, lightweight approach to creating digital collection websites driven by metadata and powered by static web technologies. This presentation will outline the key technologies and workflows that make up our IMLS-sponsored project CollectionBuilder, which is optimized for non-developers and simple hosting solutions. CollectionBuilder and the methodologies behind it open up new opportunities for collaboration between librarians, researchers, and educators to take true ownership over their digital projects.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understand how CollectionBuilder can be used to create digital collection websites or teach digital library concepts.

  • Understand the static web development approach and the potential benefits for libraries, librarians, and users.

  • Understand how GitHub workflows can be used to facilitate agile development practices.

  • Understand how a metadata/data-driven approach supports open data practices and digital preservation

Growing CollectionBuilder: Developing an Agile, Library-Centric Approach to Digital Collections and Scholarship Projects

Frustrated by the limitations and high overhead of traditional digital repository platforms, librarians at the University of Idaho Library have developed an agile, lightweight approach to creating digital collection websites driven by metadata and powered by static web technologies. This presentation will outline the key technologies and workflows that make up our IMLS-sponsored project CollectionBuilder, which is optimized for non-developers and simple hosting solutions.
