Populating a Repository with Useful Materials
Jonathan Grunert, SUNY Geneseo

In its first year, our digital repository garnered the attention of faculty and students alike. One of the driving concerns in efforts to populate the repository concerned filling it with material that people would use. In the months before launch, we looked at repositories at peer institutions and local universities, looking at their structures and the possibilities afforded by the platform. But as we dug deeper, we looked for the kinds of material most often downloaded, so we could strategize our approach to soliciting uploads from faculty and students.
This session addresses our research and strategies, as well as the challenges we faced and the future directions for our institutional repository.

Igniting Change: Archiving Born Digital
Kate Boylan, Thomas San Filippo, Mark D. LeBlanc, Wheaton College

We present an interdepartmental collaboration to build and deploy a workflow of effective practices for faculty and students as they create, catalog, manage, curate, and disseminate the growing collection of their digital works. The need for systematic workflows stem from a flurry of entrepreneurial work on our residential campus and has sparked our institution to action toward continual improvement and production of digitized collections. We report on a workflow with four faculty from multiple disciplines where pieces of digital scholarship are initially stored, managed, and shared on an individual's personal digital space, and curated pieces become a new type of collection elevated to and stored for wider dissemination and use as the foundation of new and future scholarship.
