  4. 4. Born Digital • Extent • Content • Privacy • Condition • Access • Location @amyhildrethchen & @btwashburn
  5. 5. Comparison = information ecosystem @amyhildrethchen & @btwashburn
  6. 6. Information ecosystem = linked open data @amyhildrethchen & @btwashburn
  7. 7. Linked open data = algorithms @amyhildrethchen & @btwashburn

  16. 16. If we standardized the metadata and description for born digital content on finding aids, @amyhildrethchen & @btwashburn
  17. 17. we would allow algorithms to create a more user-friendly platform. @amyhildrethchen & @btwashburn
  18. 18. User Experience = Information Seeking @amyhildrethchen & @btwashburn
  19. 19. What do users of digital archives need? @amyhildrethchen & @btwashburn
  20. 20. Then, how can we provide metadata for algorithms that can help users find what they need? @amyhildrethchen & @btwashburn
