The Library of Congress (LOC) is launching its first-ever digital strategy, building on the premise of computational access to collections. Ms. Potter will discuss how enabling the use of library collections as data fully leverages the value of digitized materials and creates pathways to revealing new connections and new knowledge in our institutions. The new digital strategy is part of a wider, user-centered, focus at the Library of Congress that seeks to connect our collections, programs and staff to the American public. The LOC's Digital Innovation Labs team facilitates experiments that demonstrate, validate, or inform the digital strategy. With programs like the Citizen Historian transcription and tagging platform, Innovator in Residence, and digital scholarship services, the team is enabling transformational experiences for visitors and users.
