The Perils of Complexity: A multi-stage study to determine necessary images for digitized scrapbook representation

Presentation on a multi-stage study to assess national trends and user preferences for scrapbook representation undertaken by librarians at the University of North Texas. The stages of this study included a review of national trends in scrapbook digitization, as seen in the Digital Public Library of America; a paper-prototyping-inspired, in-person user study; and an online survey of user preferences. The results of this research have enabled the implementation of clear guidelines at the University of North Texas for scrapbook digitization that accounts for the user experience rather than strictly relying on personal opinion or local librarian consensus. It was presented at the Visual Resource Association Annual Conference held on March 22-26, 2021.

EPIC:  A Proposed Model for Approaching Metadata Improvement (open access)

EPIC: A Proposed Model for Approaching Metadata Improvement

Abstract: This paper outlines iterative steps involved in metadata improvement within a digital library: Evaluate, Prioritize, Identify, and Correct (EPIC). The process involves evaluating metadata values system-wide to identify errors; prioritizing errors according to local criteria; identifying records containing a particular error; and correcting individual records to eliminate the error. Based on the experiences at the University of North Texas (UNT) Libraries, we propose that these cyclical steps can serve as a model for organizations that are planning and conducting metadata quality assessment.
