Interim Report
Abstract:The IMLS Digital Collections and Content (DCC) Project has made progress on a number of fronts over the past six months. The response rate for the survey distributed in September to 1998-2002 National Leadership Grant (NLG) projects with digital content was 76% for Survey 1 and 72% for Survey 2. The analysis of the survey continues, and a second distribution of the survey via the World Wide Web is planned for early May to NLG projects funded in 2003 and to the non-respondents to the first survey distribution. IMLS approved the collection description metadata schema to be used for the initial release of the collection registry (which now contains 84 preliminary records). Development of the collection registry entry/edit forms is nearly complete and will be tested in May. We have continued to work with IMLS funded institutions to set up Open Archives Initiative (OAI) metadata provider services, although we hope to increase this work in the next six months. As of April 2004, the IMLS item-level metadata repository contained 77,631 metadata records from 20 NLG projects. The research team has continued to interview participants from selected projects, conducted a focus group at the 2004 Web-Wise conference, and continues to host a bi-weekly metadata roundtable attended by library school students and faculty as well as library faculty.
