Introduction to & Updates on the Digital Public Library of America Tennessee Service Hub

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In February of this 2015, the Digital Library of Tennessee (DLTN) was accepted to be the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) Service Hub for the state of Tennessee. Guided by a committee put together by Tenn-Share and with technical support from the University of Tennessee Knoxville, the DLTN works to get Tennessee content into the DPLA, thus increasing the visibility of the institutions and local collections from our state. This presentation will introduce you to the DPLA, the DLTN, and the work currently underway with the Phase 1 ingest project, involving eight institutions and about 150,000 digital items from across the state. The presenters will also explain the DLTN organizational and technical infrastructures as well as highlight challenges (and solutions) for getting this project off the ground.
