Interim Report
Abstract:The IMLS Digital Collections and Content (DCC) Project has made progress on a number of fronts over the past six months. After a second distribution of the survey to National Leadership Grant (NLG) projects funded in 2003 as well as those non-respondent projects funded in 1998-2002, the response rate to Survey One was 86% and 77% to Survey 2. A third distribution of the survey is planned in early summer to NLG projects funded in 2004 and to the non-respondents to the first two survey distributions. The collection registry edit and entry forms were finalized and sent to the Office of Management and Budget in mid-September for approval. The first phase of the collection registry browse and search interface is complete, and we are preparing for usability testing. We have continued to work with IMLS funded institutions to set up Open Archives Initiative (OAI) metadata provider services. As of September 2004, the IMLS item-level metadata repository contained 193,677 DC records from 26 OAI-compliant NLG projects. The research team has continued to work through the interviews and surveys it has collected, and completed a preliminary analysis of metadata quality issues.
