Meeting the Demands of Digital Scholarship: Challenges and Opportunities

Daniel Gelaw Alemneh, Cathy Nelson Hartman, and Samantha Kelly Hastings

Sparking Synergies: Bringing Research and Practice Together @ ASIST '05 (ASIS&T 2005)
Westin Charlotte, Charlotte, North Carolina, October 28 - November 2, 2005


Digital libraries and supporting technologies have now matured to the point where their contents are incorporating complex and dynamic resources and services. However, these innovations may have come at the expense of simplicity, sustainability, and other commonly understood applications in the life cycle management of digital resources. Based on the University of North Texas Libraries’ “Portal to Texas History” implementation experiences, this poster will attempt to provide a general overview on the emerging trends and innovative use of portal technologies. In particular, this poster will assess, compare, and contrast the current best practices and emerging trends and provide an overall scenario in the area of aggregating a variety of formats, deploying, maintaining, and archiving digital contents, and bundling preservation metadata, among other innovative uses of digital libraries technologies.
