1. UC Libraries Digital Collection (UCLDC): April 10, 2015
Each of the UC Libraries is creating and maintaining an impressive array of significant digital collections. The UC Libraries Digital Collection project (UCLDC) is a systemwide initiative to build a technical platform that will provide the libraries with more options for managing, aggregating, and sharing those collections.
Sherri Berger from the CDL provided an overview of the platform and what you can expect to see when it launches this summer.
2. HathiTrust presentation: May 12, 2015
The UC Libraries have digitized over 3.6 million volumes that constitute over 27% of the HathiTrust Digital Library. UC Libraries and CDL contribute at all levels in HathiTrust governance and operations. Given our collective investment in HathiTrust, how can we get the most out of this collaborative resource and its many services?
Heather Christenson from the CDL provided overview of HathiTrust services, how libraries and our scholars can use HathiTrust, and some of the challenges and opportunities ahead.
