I2: Beyond Digitization: Designing and Marketing a Collaborative Online Experience Using the Tokyo War Crimes Trial Papers
Using the Tokyo War Crimes Trial Digital Exhibit, presenters will walk participants through the process of building an interactive online experience. This program focuses on how the philosophies of outreach and advocacy shaped the project, from establishing a digitization workflow to using a Drupal interface to creating collaborative opportunities. The panel will identify potential problems, solutions, and technologies for digitizing collections. They will explain how to proactively reach users by combining digitized documents with analysis and external resources. Librarians can re-imagine their role with professors, students, lawyers, and the public by learning from the creation of this educational discovery tool.
