7.1 About Digital Initiatives

Digital Initiatives

Digital Initiatives are designed to help set standards and criteria in the creation and conversion of the university’s academic resources into digital collections of permanent research value. A collection of metadata crosswalks have been created in an attempt to identify interoperable elements among metadata standards. The purpose of these standards are to assist with the metadata when converting books, manuscripts, photographs, maps, scholarly publications, etc. into a digital format for presentation over the web.
