Chelcie Juliet Rowell will share Wake Forest University's perspective as a contributing institution to the DPLA via the North Carolina Digital Heritage Center Service Hub. Like many institutions, we are grappling with how to represent archival materials at the item-level as the DPLA data model requires. In addition, we are using participation in the DPLA as an opportunity to clean up our metadata. Borrowing the principle of iterative and incremental development from the agile software development community, we treat each monthly harvest as a four-week development cycle during which we identify and implement small but meaningful improvements to our metadata.
