Limited Capacity seats available

In the summer of 2015 UBC Library will debut a new interface and service for accessing Library-curated and Library-produced digital objects called Open Collections. Following the Digital Public Library of America metadata model, metadata harvesting workflow and discovery and delivery services, Open Collections will provide researchers, students and members of the public centralized access through a single interface and index across all of UBC Library's digital collections and objects, including photographs, maps, books, theses, articles, newspapers and more. Advanced services include metadata visualizations and direct access to the API for metadata harvesting across collections as well as full text data mining (when possible). This presentation will provide an overview of the project, timeline, future directions and a preview of the Open Collections.
