Online Database: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Publications Begin Moving to Digital Environment
From U.S. DOD:
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers [USCAE] Digital Library is working to give all these documents a permanent home. The materials within the collection include information by and about the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. All content is contributed by offices throughout USACE and is enriched with metadata designated by its contributors and librarians.
“Using CONTENTdm and following a set of guidelines to establish what content qualifies for the library, we began working with public affairs offices and district librarians to collect and catalog these publications,” said Raquel Santos, a librarian with the Humphreys Engineer Center Support Activity Library.
Once a publication is submitted, it becomes publicly accessible via the library’s website.
