Omeka Digital Library Prototype

The Presidents in Peril digital library exists to educate users on American presidents who have been assassinated, or have narrowly escaped attempts on their lives, while in office. The digital library was created to celebrate the history and achievements of the United States Presidents and to inspire a wide variety of users from diverse backgrounds, to learn and appreciate American presidential history. We also hope that this library may inspire patriotism in United States citizens.

Digital Project Plan

The San Antonio Humane Society Digital Project Plan is a mock-up of a digital preservation plan provided to the nonprofit to begin their journey towards becoming a trusted digital repository.

INFO 5843 - Preservation for Digital Curation | Spring 2021
Project Description: Imagine you are at an institution that is just beginning to work on its first large digital project. As the project manager, you have been asked to create a document for the administration that explains how the project will be managed from the acquisition of materials to the preservation of the collection. Your administration wants to eventually be considered a Trusted Digital Repository but does not currently have any processes in place concerning digital collections. You will need to provide an overview of all aspects of the project with your recommendations for how you will collect/ingest the digital materials, how they will be curated, and what your plan is for the preservation of these digital materials. Your plans should follow standards and should reflect practices that will move the institution toward becoming a trusted digital repository.
