RECOMMENDATIONS MADE FOR OREGON'S DIGITAL COLLECTIONS
 
A half dozen recommendations for coordination of digitization
activities statewide have been included in a report prepared for the
Oregon State Library. The recommendations include coordination of grant
funding for digitization, adoption of digitization standards, training,
metadata content standards, and other proposals.
 
The Oregon State Library contracted with Danielle Cunniff Plumer, a
consultant specializing in collaborative cultural heritage digitization,
for the report. It includes information about existing collections, a
review of grant funding, identification of models for statewide
collaboration, and the recommendations for collaboration.
 
The report is available at:

RECORDS MANAGEMENT GUIDE DEVELOPED
 
The State Historic Records Advisory Board has prepared a
self-assessment guide to assist governing boards, directors and staff
members of historical repositories with strengthening their organization
and its work in preserving Oregon’s documentary heritage.




Completing the self-assessment will help leaders, staff and volunteers
in your organization to highlight strengths and identify areas that need
additional attention and development.  With this knowledge, your
repository can establish reasonable goals for improvement and develop
short- and long-range plans. Identification of needs is also the first
step in seeking assistance with training or funding.​​​​ The guide is
available at
