A Pond Feeding a Lake Feeding an Ocean: Wake Forest University as a Contributing Institution to the DPLA

1,172 views

Published on

Wake Forest University has begun contributing digital collections to the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) via the North Carolina Digital Heritage Center Service Hub. Each month, the North Carolina Digital Heritage Center aggregates OAI-PMH feeds of digital collections of contributing North Carolina institutions, and the DPLA in turn harvests this aggregation. Wake Forest is using participation in the DPLA as an opportunity to assess and clean up its metadata. Borrowing the principal of iterative and incremental development from the agile software development community, each monthly harvest is treated as a four-week development cycle during which small but meaningful improvements to metadata are identified and implemented (e.g. revising rights statement or populating the dc.date.created field). In contrast to a model that delivers a finished product only at the end of a project timeline, this approach allows the organization to immediately reap the benefits of participation in the DPLA, such as increased referrals to digital materials from the DPLA site and API.
