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.

GLAM Friends: The one where a museum, library, and archive collaborate

Our session will center on the collaboration between the library, archives, and art museum at the University of Notre Dame to make the collections of these campus partners available in a shared digital space. We will focus on three areas of collaboration: rights for digital objects, user experience and design, and a metadata crosswalk.

The first area of collaboration concerns rights information and associated workflows. Libraries and museums have different practices in making rights determinations for their collections. We will discuss our emerging rights workflows and some considerations when collaborating across GLAM to make materials accessible.

Our second section will dive into the user interface. Although our departments steward similar materials, the design and user experience conventions common in libraries, archives, or museums differ greatly. Presenters will discuss the user experience assessment we conducted with campus users and how we’re balancing user needs and expectations with discipline-specific interface customizations.

Our final topic will explore the process of building common terminology between project partners to facilitate object discovery and communication. Libraries, archives, and museums have different cataloging and processing standards, which results in conflicting metadata implementations. With each group's differing vocabularies and system fields, a crosswalk is critical for enabling cross-institutional discovery. Presenters will discuss the process of designing and reconciling a shared term map.
