Interim Report
Abstract:During the past six months, the IMLS Digital Collections and Content (DCC) Project has continued to make progress toward stated goals and objectives. A second survey was sent to the initial 100 projects to track the evolution of digital projects, and we continue interviewing participating projects and adding new collections to the collection registry. A preliminary group of LSTA projects have also been added to the collection registry. A new search interface focusing on individual collections was tested during this period, and we continue to integrate item-level and collection-level metadata searching. Item-level metadata reprocessing and augmentation techniques were examined, with plans to implement these findings during the next performance period. As of September 2006, the IMLS metadata repository contained 245,012 records from 33 OAI-compliant NLG projects, and the collection registry contained records for 167 NLG digital collections. Our team also continues to publish and present findings from research performed as part of this project, and to provide advice on metadata design and implementation.
