Interim Report
Abstract:The IMLS Digital Collections and Content (DCC) Project continues to make progress on its objectives. Collection-level descriptions contained in our IMLS NLG Digital Collection Registry were released to the National Leadership Grant (NLG) projects for editing and approval in January 2005, and the Registry itself was made publicly accessible in February in conjunction with the IMLS Web-Wise Conference. Usability testing on the Registry has been conducted with both IMLS staff and with representative librarian populations, and changes based on these results are planned. We have continued to work with IMLS funded institutions to set up Open Archives Initiative (OAI) metadata provider services. As of March 2005, the IMLS item-level metadata repository contained approximately 200,000 DC records from 31 OAI-compliant NLG projects. The research team has continued to work through the interviews, focus group results, and surveys it has collected, and is preparing for a major survey in the fall of 2005.
