The joint Upper Midwest Digital Collections Conference (#UMDCC20) and the Minnesota Digital Library Annual Meeting (#mndiglib2020) was held virtually November 5-6, 2020. Our two conferences share the same goals of providing an opportunity to connect with colleagues, share projects, and learn from each other, with the added benefit of cross-pollination between two different groups with many affinities.
Note: Registration is required for this event and is now closed.

Join the Minnesota Digital Library’s Metadata Librarian and Outreach Coordinator for a sampling of the current projects, services, and digital resources offered by the Minnesota Digital Library. The Minnesota Digital Library (MDL) is a leading force in digital project development in the upper Midwest. MDL served as one of the original six services hubs to the Digital Public Library of America; and continues to provide innovative leadership related to digital initiatives and metadata efforts. MDL serves as a leader in the development of the Rights Statements Standardization project and is consistently recognized for our metadata standards work.

The MDL staff members will provide an overview of new collections and projects, such as the Minnesota Reflections Primary Source Set project, and the MDL Rights Statements Standardization Project - including development and implementation. The overview will be combined with an analysis of how our work has changed and evolved during our recent experience working remotely. We will discuss our changing expectations and workflows - including online training and workshops.

There will be time for live demonstrations of some of our projects and resources, as well as information on how the digital community can get involved. We also plan time for questions.
