Growing CollectionBuilder: Developing an Agile Approach to Digital Collections (Idaho Commission for Libraries)
Frustrated by the limitations and high overhead of traditional digital repository platforms, librarians at the University of Idaho Library have been developing an agile, lightweight approach to creating digital scholarship websites driven by metadata and powered by static web technologies. Their current IMLS-sponsored CollectionBuilder project embodies this methodology in a digital collection generator optimized for non-professional developers and simple hosting solutions. This presentation will give an overview of the CollectionBuilder project and demonstrate how the University of Idaho Library uses the CONTENTdm version of the tool to build their digital collections.
