Evergrowing collections of student works in the SDR
Stanford Libraries' subject specialists are increasingly conducting outreach to promote SDR archiving and publishing services for the benefit of students and departments with whom they work closely.
In spring 2018, I collaborated with Kris Kasianovitz, Regina Roberts, Stella Ota, Ben Albritton and Arcadia Falcone to develop two workshops and a set of supporting materials designed specifically for Libraries' selectors so that they can boot-strap this process for Stanford departments. The training and documentation were clearly helpful: the quality of metadata provided by the students was higher and fewer corrections were required during processing.
Here are a few selected highlights from this year’s crop of student deposits:
