Building the Digital Library in Practice:
Collaboration across Borders and Platform
Matt Barry, Metadata Management Librarian, University of Western Ontario
Caroline Daniels, Systems Librarian, Kwantlen Polytechnic University
Loren Fantin, Executive Director, OurDigitalWorld
Daniel Sifton, Coordinator, Library Automation and Technical Services, Vancouver Island University
Our session today
As Canada works on implementing a national digital library strategy, we
demonstrate what is happening in practice with OurDigitalWorld and the BC Digital
Library, radically collaborating on an open digital library platform developed in
New Zealand.
● Ontario and British Columbia contexts
● The why and the how of our collaboration
● Demo of prototype: Ontario view/BC view/combined view
● Same old, same new?
● Questions/discussion
Setting the Context
Setting the context
Q: Who’s in the room? How many people from:
● Academic sector
● Public library
● GLAM - archives, museums, historical societies
● Government
● ?
BC-ODW “Digital Library” project
The BC PDL initiative and
ODW are both looking for
community-based platforms
for digital collections and aim
to strengthen and advance
both initiatives by working
together.
What can and should the digital public library be?
The local “library” (archives/museum/historical society/community group) provides
content, community knowledge and connections. A DPL provides technology,
expertise, training, leadership and a network - strategically aligned and in concert
with other provincial, national and international bodies.
It is the strategic development, utilization and coordination of community capacity,
bringing regional expertise and content to a big picture vision of web-scaled
collections.
The DPL is both local and global - connected, open, shareable, sustainable.

Building the Digital Library in Practice: Collaboration across Borders and Platform Matt Barry, Metadata Management Librarian, University of Western Ontario Caroline Daniels, Systems Librarian, Kwantlen Polytechnic University Loren Fantin, Executive Director, OurDigitalWorld Daniel Sifton, Coordinator, Library Automation and Technical Services, Vancouver Island University
  • 2. Our session today As Canada works on implementing a national digital library strategy, we demonstrate what is happening in practice with OurDigitalWorld and the BC Digital Library, radically collaborating on an open digital library platform developed in New Zealand. ● Ontario and British Columbia contexts ● The why and the how of our collaboration ● Demo of prototype: Ontario view/BC view/combined view ● Same old, same new? ● Questions/discussion
  • 4. Setting the context Q: Who’s in the room? How many people from: ● Academic sector ● Public library ● GLAM - archives, museums, historical societies ● Government ● ?
  • 5. BC-ODW “Digital Library” project The BC PDL initiative and ODW are both looking for community-based platforms for digital collections and aim to strengthen and advance both initiatives by working together.
  • 6. What can and should the digital public library be? The local “library” (archives/museum/historical society/community group) provides content, community knowledge and connections. A DPL provides technology, expertise, training, leadership and a network - strategically aligned and in concert with other provincial, national and international bodies. It is the strategic development, utilization and coordination of community capacity, bringing regional expertise and content to a big picture vision of web-scaled collections. The DPL is both local and global - connected, open, shareable, sustainable.
  • 7. What do GLAM organizations need to participate? ● Funding for staff to carry out the digitization work: curate, digitize content, create/edit metadata, manage the digital files, make them accessible (preservation) ● Digital collections software and hosting - standard metadata formats ● Assistance with data migration for exporting data, and in other cases with data mapping ● Resources on digitization practices, standards, copyright, accessibility, discovery ● Project management assistance, training and webinars

  • 31. Phase 1: Demonstrate and Communicate The BCDL is a phased, multi-year project, guided by an over-arching vision of access to the intellectual, historical and cultural record of the Province for the people of British Columbia. In its simplest form, the BCDL provides access to a range of materials that enrich the intellectual and leisure life of a citizen, showcase the contributions of individuals, organizations and government, and contribute to the economic well-being of the province. Where are we at now…. Phase 1 was to develop a demonstration site, a website, and to provide ongoing communications for the initiative. ● We have a demonstration site ● We have a website at http://bcdigilib.ca/ ● We have ongoing communications and socialize the idea at any chance we get ● We have interim governance structure
