Working with Digital Resources Webinar

29th March 2022 3:00pm-4:30pm AEST


Amelia Rowe & Rachel Tropea (RMIT)Capacity building, collaboration, and self-service: RMIT Course Guides digital archiving and access project

As 2021 drew to a close the RMIT University Archives team identified an opportunity to improve work processes, reduce queries, and increase user self-service. Archives receive almost daily requests from past students for old course guides (2005 and earlier) most of which are born digital. These digital course guides were stored on the RMIT network and only accessible to the Archives team. Working with stakeholders the Library’s Collections team decided to ingest the course guides into Rosetta to meet archival requirements then make them discoverable and accessible to the public via LibrarySearch (Primo VE). This presentation will share what we did to make RMIT course guides discoverable to end users.
