Abstract


The UNT Libraries Digital Projects Unit regularly collaborates with other departments, campus entities, and external institutions. We currently have over two hundred partners of various kinds contributing to the more than 260,000 digital objects in our system. Our presentation will discuss procedures and techniques that can help to streamline collaborative projects, and outline some of the concerns that institutions may want to keep in mind when starting similar projects. We will focus on providing suggestions to help others have more successful collaborative digital projects including: considerations at the initial point of contact, managing the practical aspects of the process to make digitization run smoothly, and the benefits of collaborative projects for participants and the users that access their digital items.
