NCompass Live: Metadata Makeover: Transforming Omaha Public Library's Digital Collections - Recorded Online Session 

Description

In 1998 Omaha Public Library created its first online digital library to showcase its extensive collection of original photographs and documents from the 1898 Trans-Mississippi and International Exposition, Omaha’s own world’s fair. Another digitization project was undertaken in 2004. A decade later it was only too evident that the entire digital library, with its hodgepodge of different interfaces and metadata standards, needed to be dragged into the 21st century. We did it—despite minimal staff, minimal training, and minimal time! Come hear this saga of the good, the bad, and the ugly, and what we learned from it.

Presenter: Martha Grenzeback, Omaha Public Library; Mary Marchio, retired.
