This presentation reported on the grant-funded project, “…And 25 of our closest friends: The Louisiana Digital Library as Community-Focused Data,” which distributes travel funds to LDL participating institutions in order to foster community-wide conversations about our digital collections. The presentation focused on work done to date and next steps.
The first step of the project involved a survey sent to member institutions apprising their current practices for digitization selection and assessment, especially the role of diversity and inclusion in the selection process. Kelly also presented on the survey results in greater detail at the following:
