New Video Online: A Look at New York’s DPLA Service Hub From the Ground Up (DPLAfest 2016 Presentation)

The following presentation was recorded at DPLAfest 2016 on in Washington, DC on April 14, 2016.

About the Presentation

Liaisons and digital collection administrators from the ESDN New York DPLA regional partners discuss the business of contributing to DPLA from their various contexts and platforms. Panelists discussed their experience working with ESDN to coordinate contribution workflows, permissions, metadata guidelines, metadata mapping, and other outreach activities to member organizations through a distributed hub network.

Empire State Digital Network (ESDN), the New York state service hub for DPLA, is administered by the Metropolitan New York Library Council (METRO) in partnership with eight regional library councils collectively working as the Empire State Library Network. Together, these partners collaborate to contribute digital resources from hundreds of New York collecting institutions to DPLA.

ESDN was not an existing portal or repository before forming as a statewide service hub. Instead, the hub is built on a network of regionally based consortial partners to facilitate contribution to DPLA. Liaisons and digital collection administrators from the hub’s regional partners will participate on a panel to discuss the business of contributing to DPLA from their various contexts and platforms. Panelists will discuss their experience working with ESDN to coordinate contribution workflows, permissions, metadata guidelines, metadata mapping, and other outreach activities to member organizations through a distributed hub network.
