Abstract


When members of the Digital Projects Group in Baylor’s Electronic Library first sat down with legendary football head coach Grant Teaff, they couldn't have predicted the scope and impact the resulting Baylor University Libraries Athletics Archive (BULAA) would have on preserving university history, raising funds and promoting morale with alumni. Darryl Stuhr – Assistant Director for Digital Projects – and Eric Ames – Curator of Digital Collections - will address the history of the project, its workflow and mechanics, and its impact on donors, Bears supporters and historians around the world. Attendees will gain insight on how to manage a multi-source digital collection, tips on selecting outsource service providers and soliciting support from nontraditional givers.
