Interim Report
Abstract:The IMLS Digital Collections and Content (DCC) Project is continuing progress on previous objectives as well as laying the foundation for the new research agenda that will be undertaken as part of the grant’s extension. The most notable milestone for this performance period was reached on 30 September when we made our Item-Level Repository publicly accessible. During this performance period we also have continued usability testing of the collection registry with students and faculty, and continued working with IMLS funded institutions to set up and harvest from new Open Archives Initiative (OAI) metadata provider services. As of October 2005, the IMLS item-level metadata repository contained approximately 267,000 DC records from 31 OAI-compliant NLG projects. Our research team has continued interviews of participating projects and has completed plans for follow-up round of surveys to assess changes in participating NLG project plans and priorities so far over the course of our project. (Submission to of required paperwork to OMB has been accomplished and we anticipate soliciting input via the new survey instrument in December 2005.) We have begun the process of adding new NLG project collections funded in October of 2004 to the Collection Registry. Out team continues presenting and publishing on the project’s research, and to mark the completion of the original 3-year grant, we have written several white papers summarizing project findings to date for possible dissemination to the IMLS community.
