Abstract


As Texas Tech’s Digital Library has passed phase 2 of their Digital Library Initiative, phase 3 requires a broadening of our scope and looking at problems at the national level.  There are three national level problems that have clear tasks and initiatives that can be tackled at the local level. Those problems are linked data, a new digital age for archival collections, and representing under-represented groups.  This presentation will discuss the practical steps Texas Tech is making toward solving the problems and practical steps others can take to work toward solutions.
