Interim Report
Abstract:The IMLS Digital Collections and Content project has made good progress in all areas of the project during the previous six months. As noted in prior report, a few early milestones were delayed due to longer than anticipated time to obtain clearance for survey instruments, but surveys were distributed to 92 National Leadership Grant (NLG) projects in mid-September. We anticipate completing all milestones, albeit on a delayed schedule. In August, a collection level metadata schema was approved by the Steering Committee and submitted to IMLS for approval. Progress was made on design of the collection registry interface and database structure. The project team worked with several institutions to either set up or advise on implementation of Open Archives Initiative (OAI) metadata provider services. As of Oct. 23, 2003, the item level metadata repository holds 43,462 records from fifteen NLG projects. Repository is currently searchable through an early alpha interface. Project research team has begun interviewing participants from selected projects, and continues to host a bi-weekly metadata roundtable.
