Updated Guide for Building Digital Collections

NISO has updated their digital collection guide — “A Framework of Guidance for Building Good Digital Collections.”  Originally created in 2000, the last update was in 2004.  It’s definition of a “good” digital collection includes:

  • interoperability
  • reusability
  • persistence
  •  verification
  • documentation
  • support for intellectual property rights

The guide is divided into four major sections, each with a set of principles that includes discussion:

  • Collections
  • Objects
  • Metadata
  • Initiatives

Soon, this committee will post a Community Version of this guide.  It’s goal is to encourage ongoing contributions from the digital library community, including your ideas, experiences, resources, and evaluations of resources.
