For Commercial Uses

Defining Infrastructure : tools for digitalisation, digital library online space Defining Projects : selecting manageable & contextualized projects Digitizing Materials : Copyright, creating metadata, digitizing, loading online, and organizing Building Context : Exhibits, themes, and more Collaboration : Building additional context and scope for development & promotion Planning : For continued growth and more connections Promotion : Promoting each collection and each project and explaining how they develop the Library as each phase is finished Assessment/Feedback General Steps Towards Building a Digital Library

Defining Infrastructure : tools for digitalisation, digital library online space

Defining Projects : selecting manageable & contextualized projects

Digitizing Materials : Copyright, creating metadata, digitizing, loading online, and organizing

Building Context : Exhibits, themes, and more

Collaboration : Building additional context and scope for development & promotion

Planning : For continued growth and more connections

Promotion : Promoting each collection and each project and explaining how they develop the Library as each phase is finished

Assessment/Feedback

Display / Usability: for internal development and patrons Access: open or restricted Sustainability / Preservation Reputation and capability of service providers, number and size of install base (for sustainability and shared improvements) Equipment and training Ability to migrate, add collaborators, move content Infrastructure Considerations
