Sharing Oregon’S Cultural Heritage: Harvesting Oregon Digital’S Collections Into The Digital Public Library Of America, Julia Simic, Ryan Wick

This article discusses the process of becoming participants in the hub-network structure of the two organizations, remediating metadata in compliance with best practices, and modifications to the digital collections platforms, both locally and at MWDL, to successfully harvest over 100,000 items into DPLA.

The Oregon Digital Newspaper Program’S Commitment To Open Access, Sarah Seymore

OLA Quarterly

The Oregon Digital Newspaper Program (ODNP) at the University of Oregon Libraries is an initiative to digitize historic and current Oregon newspapers, making them freely available to the public through a keyword-searchable online database. The ODNP is committed to open access and has included collaboration and data sharing with larger programs like the Library of Congress’ Chronicling America historic newspaper website. Since 2015, the ODNP has increased its open access mission by archiving and hosting born-digital newspaper content, as well as continuing digitization of historic newspapers from microfilm and print. This article outlines the ODNP’s past and current open ...

Opportunities With Archives West: How A Small Academic Archive Benefits From Membership, Becca Evans

OLA Quarterly

Like many smaller academic organizations, Southern Oregon University’s Hannon Library Special Collections and University Archives (SPEC) operates with a limited budget and minimal staffing. Membership to Archives West provides Hannon Library with a framework to enhance discovery, improve collection management, and promote growth and sustainability. The additional resources provided by Archives West and the Orbis Cascade Alliance allow SPEC to increase capacity and improve services to students and community researchers. The underlying framework consists of training sessions, best practices documents, affordable access to ArchivesSpace, and system support. While improved discoverability is often the primary motivator, libraries should not overlook ...


Surveying Oregon’S Digital Heritage Collections, Beth Dehn Aug 2019

Surveying Oregon’S Digital Heritage Collections, Beth Dehn

OLA Quarterly

In 2018, the Oregon Heritage Commission conducted a survey of heritage organizations across the state to capture data regarding digitization efforts. The goal of the survey was to collect a baseline of information on the types of digital collections in Oregon, existing digital infrastructure, and a level of interest in collaborative options. Data gathered was shared with our partners, including the Orbis Cascade Alliance, to aid their work in considering how to create an on-ramp for smaller collections to enter into the Digital Public Library of America. This work followed the 2013 Environmental Scan of Digital Collections conducted by the ...

Digital Repositories And Data Harvests

OLA Quarterly

Today it’s hard to imagine life without a smartphone, but broadcast television, travel to the moon, MARC records, personal computers, email, the Internet, online library catalogs, cell phones, video on demand, virtual reality, and digital archive collections all came about in one human generation.

Throughout that generation of disruptive and innovative technologies, librarians have served the public good by providing the conceptual skills to organize and describe information and provide or facilitate access to it. Moreover, libraries, through cooperatives and information sharing agreements, have made possible the construction of massive data systems that serve our nation’s needs with ...

Dpla In The Pacific Northwest: The Orbis Cascade Alliance Case, Mark Dahl, Zachariah Selley Aug 2019

Dpla In The Pacific Northwest: The Orbis Cascade Alliance Case, Mark Dahl, Zachariah Selley

OLA Quarterly

The Orbis Cascade Alliance’s journey to becoming a Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) Service Hub illustrates some important challenges and opportunities in the world of digital cultural heritage work. Released in 2013, DPLA brings together cultural heritage content on a national digital platform. Since 2014 the Alliance has moved towards DPLA membership as part of a broader strategy to aggregate its members’ digital cultural heritage collections and make them more discoverable. Competing strategies for making content discoverable, limited financial resources, and differences in missions between institutions have been obstacles as the Alliance has worked towards aggregated collections and ...


Building And Navigating A Path To Collaborative Digital Platforms For Oregon’S Libraries: There Are Many Ways To Get There, Arlene Weible, Ross Fuqua Aug 2019

Building And Navigating A Path To Collaborative Digital Platforms For Oregon’S Libraries: There Are Many Ways To Get There, Arlene Weible, Ross Fuqua

OLA Quarterly

Over the last several years, the State Library of Oregon has explored options and supported a variety of projects to promote collaboration among libraries to build and sustain Oregon digital collections. Activities such as hosted meetings, grant funding, and pilot projects have identified both opportunities and roadblocks to collaboration, especially for Oregon’s small public libraries. A clear and distinct path has proven to be somewhat elusive, and the journey itself has demonstrated that a one-size-fits-all solution is unlikely to emerge soon. Multiple pathways to a more robust digital collections platform may not only be inevitable but preferable, given the ...

Ouachita Student Publications Earn 53 Awards At 2017 Acma Competition, Katie Smith, Ouachita News Bureau

Press Releases

Ouachita Baptist University’s student publications recently won 53 awards at the Arkansas College Media Association (AMCA) conference in Bentonville, Ark.

“It’s nice to see so many students honored for their work because it shows that it is a team effort when producing the publications for the university,” said Dr. Deborah Root, chair of Ouachita’s Rogers Department of Communications and sponsor of the Ouachitonian yearbook. “From writing to design to photography, it takes a strong staff of students to publish award-winning publications.”

Suggested Activities For Using The Newspaper In The Esl Classroom, Carol Gordenstein

MA TESOL Collection

The following project is designed to help teachers introduce the newspaper into the ESL classroom by means of specific activities which have relevance in language teaching. These activities contain both linguistic and cultural content, and can be implemented for various levels. The collection of ideas is grouped according to particular news articles, with a brief description of each type of feature, an example of the feature, and a list of specific and sometimes more general activities related to the feature. This project can be used as a supplement to regular language teaching procedures, and it is hoped that it will ...
