Putting Your Mouth Where Your Money Is: Talking About Digital Library Budgeting
Library budgets have traditionally been referred to as "Acquisitions Budgets" reflecting the purchase of and subscriptions to information resources. Times have changed and our language needs to reflect new and emerging efforts and priorities supported by libraries. This snapshot will engage and energize the audience about how budgets reflect organizational missions and priorities and how libraries need to initiate and lead a change in the conversation from being seen as a "bank account for licensing platforms." Libraries support local technology infrastructures, discover and surface information, provide access and services, and collaborate with fellow researchers in scholarly communication and data processes.

Increasing Transparency: University of Michigan's Front Door Process
Despite our best efforts, colleagues at the University of Michigan Library consistently desire more information about their IT projects: Who will be doing the work? When will the work begin? When will the project be done?

In an attempt to increase transparency, the Library IT unit has developed a process to gather project requests into a centralized space and to provide a simplified project queue that is accessible to everyone in the organization. We will share how this new workflow has brought valuable insights into how we communicate with our Library colleagues and learn from others about similar efforts.

Presenter: Meghan Musolff (University of Michigan)

How to Create (and Keep Creating) a Digital Projects Workflow
How do you communicate your digitization process to your stakeholders? The Digital Library Production Service unit at the University of Michigan Library developed a digital projects workflow to serve as a communication tool during the planning stages of new projects. This workflow, now beginning its fourth iteration, allows us to effectively address common digitization issues (such as the lack of metadata, rights and permission investigations and content curation) with our stakeholders both within and outside of the Library. We look forward to sharing our workflow and process, and hearing from others about similar communication efforts.

Leveraging Experience and Expertise: Creating Campus-wide Digital Services
At UC Santa Cruz (UCSC), the Digital Initiatives team has been engaged in digitizing special collections materials for over a decade and is just now navigating the thorny process of making such services available for the entire campus. With both political and technical challenges in mind, we seek to ask: how can we leverage skills and expertise developed on our own collections in response to faculty projects and campus wide initiatives? In other words, how can we scale and support the kinds of digitization, OCR processing, hosting, and digital object preservation work we have done internally for faculty?

Presenters: Rachel Deblinger (University of California, Santa Cruz), Susan Perry (University of California, Santa Cruz)

Policies for Data Repositories: Experiences at Temple University
Policy development for institutional repositories is a complex process that requires legal, technical, and administrative expertise from a variety of institutional units. Temple University Libraries' repository service implementation team consulted with University Council, Computer Services, Office of the Vice Provost for Research, and the repository technical development team and administrators within the Libraries to draft policies for their repository pilot project and for the permanent installation. This presentation discusses the steps taken by this team to create these policies, the lessons learned throughout the process, and the current state of their policy development.

Presenters: Margaret Janz (Temple University), Gretchen Sneff (Temple University)

How Many Partners Does it Take to Screw in a IIIF Lightbulb??
Harvard, unlike your institution I am sure, is a distributed organization that presents several bureaucratic barriers to allocating funding for new projects. This talk will present an interesting tale of collaboration between multiple units within a large organization to gain internal funding, that ultimately leads to a significant open source collaboration with the larger library community on the Mirador image viewer and the International Image Interoperability Framework.
