This wiki is for notes relating to events organized by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation-funded project Born Digital Collections: An Inter-Institutional Model for Stewardship.
Over a two-year project period (October 2009 - October 2011), the University of Virginia Library, in partnership with Stanford University, the University of Hull, and Yale University will create an inter-institutional framework for stewarding born-digital content. The group plans to process and preserve thirteen born-digital collections of noteworthy individuals and/or organizations and make them discoverable via Hypatia, a Fedora/Hydra based solution, which can easily be installed and implemented by other institutions. A cohort of digital archivists has been established with a mandate to engender a digital archivist community of professionals both nationally and internationally, and they will disseminate broadly the lessons learned from the real work of processing and preserving a varied range of born-digital collections.
