Timeline: Please express interest by Friday, September 30th

Local digitization is the cornerstone of an increasingly broad digital
collections landscape. Institutional efforts to digitize local collections
and get them into broader access channels creates innumerable opportunities
for new scholarship. Efforts to promote this content into the larger
landscape are often initiated locally, relying on in-house equipment,
expertise, and infrastructure. This work is being undertaken at every price
point by institutions and teams of all scales and levels of experience.

In response to track 6 of the 2017 ER&L Conference Call for Proposals
– “Scholarly
Communication & Library publishing: Locally Digitized Materials”
<https://www.electroniclibrarian.org/erlplus/tracks/> – this session seeks
to present a series of impactful case studies showcasing locally designed
and implemented digitization workflows that serve:

   - the source material
   - the institutional context
   - the target audience (scholarly or otherwise) for both the source
   material and the resultant digital objects

Please respond if you’re interested in sharing your experience developing
and maintaining local digitization workflows. Relevant case studies can
range from end-to-end solutions to single points of success within larger
workflows, and can deal with any and all content types, scales,
institutional contexts, and audiences. Also of interest are discussions of
specific tools and platforms used to describe and manage digitized
material, strategies for promotion and outreach, and examples of locally
digitized content interacting with other collection types.

*ER&L 2017 CFP Track 6 Prompt: How do we deal with new models of
scholarship that are emerging? How do we accommodate new forms of content?
What can we do to facilitate knowledge sharing and access? What role can
the library play in the creation and distribution of the products of
scholarship and creativity?*

Some questions to think about regarding aspects of your local digitization
practice that might be of interest to others grappling with use cases
similar to yours:

   - Do you perform in-house digitization of local collections – in any
   format –  that have historically been under served or underutilized?
   - Do you perform in-house digitization of heavily used local collections
   to create digital surrogates that will reduce the demand for handling the
   source material?
   - Has local digitization enabled you to transform the way your users
   interact with your content?
   - Do you have analytics that capture the impact of your local
   digitization efforts?
   - Are you digitizing material locally for purposes other than
   facilitating user-access to the content?
   - Do the resultant digital objects of your local digitization efforts
   get managed, described, delivered, and preserved alongside other content in
   your collections?
   - How are your local digitization workflows documented for internal
   and/or external audiences?
   - How do you define best practice locally? How did you arrive at those
   - Are local digitization efforts pursued on a cost-recovery basis, built
   into your operating budget, or with special funding?
   - How do you capture rights metadata and modulate access to restricted
