Hello all:
The Orbis Cascade Alliance has launched its new Digital Collections initiative with funding from the LSTA program of the Oregon State Library and has hired Anneliese Dehner as the Metadata Applications Librarian who will support the project along with the Content Creation & Dissemination Program Manager and the Digital Collections Working Group. 

This initiative will build capacity for digital collections metadata cleanup, training, and support. This includes implementing the Alliance's Dublin Core metadata standards <https://www.orbiscascade.org/digital-collections-documentation/>, building a sustainable aggregation infrastructure at the Orbis Cascade Alliance, developing replicable supports, and making an application to be a Digital Public Library of America <https://dp.la/> hub. Dehire joins the Alliance staff as a contractor to support the analysis, cleanup, and aggregation of digital collections metadata from Alliance institutions. She brings in-depth knowledge and experience in this work that she has used as an independent contractor and former library staff member from Lewis & Clark College. 

The training, documentation, and other supports for this work will be designed to be broadly applicable and made publicly available at https://www.orbiscascade.org/digital-collections-documentation/

For more information on this initiative, see https://www.orbiscascade.org/digital-collections/ <https://www.orbiscascade.org/digital-collections/>

Best, Jodi
