Connecting Presidential Collections
Connecting Presidential Collections was presented as a poster presentation at the 2012 DLF Forum. Come learn about how the project has progressed in the last three years:

• From an IMLS planning grant to an IMLS project grant;
• From 1-year grant cycle to 3-year grant cycle;
• From 6 partners to 12 partners;
• From 11,000 digital items to almost 240,000 digital items.

We will discuss the four parts of the grant project and demo some of the project resources. We will also talk about the major challenges that we have faced—some quite unexpected—and how we have addressed them.

Presenters: Sheila Blackford (University of Virginia), Amber Reichert (University of Virginia)

From Digital Collection to Encyclopedia: the Arhoolie Foundation's Frontera Collection
This presentation uses the Arhoolie Foundation's Strachwitz Frontera Collection of Mexican and Mexican American Recordings digitization project to examine and question the extent to which digital library standards and practices have enhanced or challenged the aims of the project. The presentation discusses the decisions at various points during the project to conform to standards, or not, as we sought to meets the sometimes conflicting user and institutional needs and objectives.

Presenters: Kristian Allen (University of California, Los Angeles), Stephen Davison (California Institute of Technology), Elizabeth McAulay (University of California, Los Angeles)

Creating a Single Search across Multiple City of Burnaby Cultural Resources
The Heritage Burnaby website represents all of the community heritage assets managed by the City of Burnaby, British Columbia: archives records, City Council records, special collections library records, artifacts, and heritage buildings. A major upgrade completed in 2015 provides users with a single search across all data and resources. Results from disparate collections are interfiled and include library, archival and museum metadata, digitized books, streaming audio oral history recordings, videos as well council minutes, reports and bylaws. This snapshot will demonstrate how libraries, archives, museums and other civic departments can partner to present a unified heritage portal for citizens.

Presenters: Jonathan Jacobsen (Andornot Consulting), Lisa Codd (Burnaby Village Museum, City of Burnaby)

ArcLight: Enhancing Discovery and Access for Archival Materials
ArcLight is intended to be an open source web-based solution that will give institutions an enhanced way to provide access to their archival collections by integrating digital objects with archival description. Our presentation has two main goals: 1) Clearly convey the vision and objectives of ArcLight so attendees can assess whether it may be relevant to their institution, and 2) Update the community on the current status of the design process so that those interested in ArcLight know how they can contribute to the design and/or development process to make ArcLight an effective solution for their archival discovery needs.

Presenters: Laura Wilsey (Stanford University), Gary Geisler (Stanford University), Jennifer Vine (Stanford University)

A Truth Universally Acknowledged: The Lizzie Bennet Diaries and Long-term Preservation Considerations for Born-digital Transmedia Storytelling
Transmedia storytelling is a narrative method which utilizes multiple platforms and/or formats to tell parts of a cohesive story. Innovative web-based projects use text, images, video, and social media platforms to maximize interactivity between creators, audiences, and in-world characters. These interactions are timely, immediate, and ephemeral. The creative output resides on various web-based platforms. For digital archivists and librarians, they present unique challenges, on both technical and policy levels. Using the award-winning web series, "The Lizzie Bennet Diaries" as an example, this Snapshot session poses questions about the long-term preservation needs of transmedia storytelling projects and born-digital creative content.

Presenter: Emily Zheng (University of Alberta)

Collaboration, "Crowdsourcing," and Data Curation for Book History
"Crowdsourcing" is a popular term, but often vaguely used to encompass a more nuanced range of activities involving contributions from an array of individual users and collaboration on methods and standards across multiple individual institutions. This snapshot talk addresses approaches to data curation and collaboration for the Provenance Online Project (POP), currently hosted on Flickr and now working with a group of 5 partner institutions to post images of and metadata for ownership marks online that a user community helps to describe and identify, leading to information about the history of the world's books.

Presenter: Laura Aydelotte (University of Pennsylvania)

Olive Executable Archive: Next Steps
This talk discusses Olive Executable Archive (https://olivearchive.org/) accomplishments in preserving for use early web browsers; word processing, spreadsheet and presentation software; computer games; simulation packages; and educational software. Some software such as educational visualization software and computer games is self-contained; they can be executed within Olive. Other archived software begins its useful life when opening external files thought to be lost. Moving forward Olive proposes where the community might seek common cause in addressing executable content, looks to the community for engagement and thoughtful critique and invites attendee feedback.

Presenter: Erika Linke (Carnegie Mellon University)

YouTube for Mathematics (almost, but digitally preserved) - BIRS and UBC Collaborate to Create a Digitally Preserved Mathematical Video Archive
Math scholars anywhere in the world can now access thousands of workshops and lectures of the renowned Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS), thanks to University of British Columbia (UBC) Library's data management and digital preservation work, using Archivematica (for digital preservation) and DSpace (for access).
