We will explore the foundational concepts necessary for planning and executing successful digital library projects, both by reading articles written by digital library practitioners and by doing hands-on exercises inside and outside the classroom. The class will cover both technical and non-technical digital library topics, including intellectual property, digitization, XML-encoded metadata, and digital repository design.
