Transcript

  • 1. Digitisation; Systems & processes making order out of chaos. Digitisation Open Day, May 2014 Dave Thompson Digital Curator, Wellcome Library
  • 2. Opportunity to buy lots of cameras…?
  • 3. Ohio State, Large Binocular Telescope http://www.astronomy.ohio-state.edu/LBT/
  • 4. Lets be clear. Sticking something under a camera or onto a scanner ain’t the issue here.
  • 5. Digitisation supports the business • Digitisation supports your users needs. • Digitisations supports your strategic goals & aims. • Digitisation aligns with your existing services. Remember, digitisation shouldn’t be at odds with your collection policy & it shouldn’t be in conflict with other services that are on offer. Access to digitised material doesn’t necessarily replace walk-in or other forms of access.
  • 6. Digitisation – process overview Plan project Identify material Identify resources Plan process Digitise process Deliver Refine & review processes document & share Document & share Funding, staff, equipment, IT, storage, data management planning Digitisation Open Days Strategy, plans, user services, etc
  • 7. Thinking conceptually … OAIS http://www.fachlabor-gubler.ch/eng/consulting/underlying-principles/the-oais-reference-model.html http://public.ccsds.org/publications/archive/650x0m2.pdf
  • 8. There are simpler models… http://www.library.cornell.edu/dlit/MathArc/web/StoryFrameset.html
  • 9. Digitisation uses three IT systems… 1. Workflow management system – ‘Goobi’ = PRODUCTION. 2. Digital object repository – ‘Preservica’ = STORAGE. 3. Front end - ‘the player’ = ACCESS. Remember, this doesn’t include cataloguing or bibliographic systems. Here we’re just talking about the process of creating, storing & delivering digital content. You have to assume that those other systems are also in place.
  • 10. Goobi • Manages & tracks the production of content. • Workflow driven. Highly automated. Project based. • Allows us to set very granular access conditions. • Scalable & highly adaptable to different projects. Goobi is our workflow tracking & management system for the production of digital content. Automating as many of Goobi’s processes as possible allows our work to be both efficient & scalable. Goobi is also the system with which humans interact the most.
  • 11. How Goobi works – a workflow
  • 12. How Goobi works – METS editing Pagination as per original Descriptive metadata from imported MARC Structure (Pagination &/or Sections)
  • 13. Preservica • Workflow based easily ‘talks’ to other systems. • Content agnostic. • Creates administrative metadata on ingest. • Preservation orientated.
  • 14. How Preservica works
  • 15. How Preservica works – out the back • No direct public access to SDB. • Little direct staff access to SDB content. • High levels of automation of ingest, Goobi. • Platform for dissemination mediated by the player. A centralised repository of & for digital content is a key part of both preservation of & access to your content. It’s a single place where we both store & manage our content.
  • 16. The player Wellcomelibrary.org/player
  • 17. How the player works • Makes HTTP request to SDB for content based on Preservica PUID (Objects unique & permanent ID). • Draws & implements access conditions from METS file. • Permitted user actions drawn from METS. • Draws DMD from live catalogue + from METS. The player acts as a single point of access to our content, we have a unified delivery mechanism through which all content is delivered. Aim is to provide as seamless & as easy as possible access to all digital content. Easy for the user to understand & an interface with which they can quickly become familiar.
  • 18. So, to wrap up… • Digitisation supports strategic goals & aims. • Systems & processes help us manage the end-to end production & delivery of digitised content. • Need to think about the whole activity not just one part. • Above all else digitisation is an exercise in project management.
  • 19. Thank you Questions now, questions later…? Dave Thompson, Digital Curator Wellcome Library d.thompson@wellcome.ac.uk - @d_n_t http://wellcomelibrary.org/
