Digital Initiatives & Metadata
Education and support for staff who build, manage, and preserve digital and physical collections
We offer educational opportunities related to digitization, digital preservation, metadata standards (including standards for bibliographic description and digital collections), linked data, and OCLC CONTENTdm for libraries, archives, and other organizations in the Minitex region.
We also organize and host the Upper Midwest Digital Collections Conference and Minitex Technical Services Symposium every two years.
Through our training, communications, and the resources on this site, we strive to strengthen the knowledge, skills, and efficiency of staff in libraries throughout the Minitex region.
If you need training on a specific topic as you begin your project/s, visit the events and training section on our website.
