Wichita State University Campus Buildings Collection: A Case Study

The presentation is a case study of a project to create a digital collection of campus buildings with enhanced metadata. By partnering with the history department and creating class research projects for each building, Wichita State University Libraries is able to generate a mutually beneficial applied learning project. Students, under the guidance of Special Collections staff in conjunction with History faculty, research the buildings using primary sources from Special Collections and provide extensive descriptive metadata. In return, the students' research is published in the CONTENTdm collection and their required applied learning project is completed.

This session will discuss the process of creating a collaborative project like this: how the project was developed, implemented, and lessons learned along the way. There will also be a discussion of ideas for expanding the project into the future.
