Course Description

Digital repositories allow libraries, archives and museums to disseminate and create access to unique digital collections related to institutional academic output or digital special collections. Digital repository options vary widely, from proprietary to open source; and platforms specialized for specific use cases, such as institutional academic production, audiovisual materials, cultural heritage collections, and community and tribal collections. This course is designed to give the student the fundamentals of selecting, designing and implementing the digital repository solution that is right for their particular institutional, academic or personal project.

Course goals:

  • Learn what a digital repository is (and, just as importantly, is not!)
  • Understand the options available for digital repository platforms, whether open source, proprietary, or hybrid
  • Understand what skills and knowledge are needed to work on a team implementing, migrating or rehauling an institutional or digital repository
  • Identification and analysis of viability of a current or proposed digital repository

This course can be taken as one of six courses needed to earn our Certificate in Digital Curation, but can be taken as a stand-alone course as well.
