Description

Digital Commons @ Winthrop launched in January 2015, 5 years later we need to reconsider how our metadata looks and functions not only in our repository but also in other platforms. In July 2020 Dacus Library migrated our ILS to Alma-Primo (Ex Libris), which has given us the capability to harvest our repository directly into our ILS. This session will discuss our current journey creating workflows between the repository and the ILS and between repository administrators and metadata and cataloging staff. We will also discuss ways to encourage stakeholders to understand the impact of their work on discoverability and search engine optimization. We will focus on archival records, theses, and oral histories as examples.

Keywords
