  • Reclaiming the special

  • The Archival Research Center is a direct outgrowth of the belief that primary resource materials should be a major focal point of instruction and research. . However, traditional access to these materials is cumbersome and labor-intensive and most institutions do not allow copying. Digitizing these materials keeps them alive and relevent for modern users (ARL report)

  • The return of the specialThere is growing appreciation among libraries that unique or rare materials are valuable research and learning resourceshave been underutilized. There is a growing interest in digitizing cultural heritage materials as it offers opportunities for releasing their value in new ways as a way of disclosing the memory and identity of communities.

  • Licensed materialsLike many libraries, the UW Libraries has struggled with how to effectively and efficiently manage its growing licensed resources such as e-journals, A&I databases, and full-text services. We were using a mix of locally developed and maintained files and databases (in file cabinets, on our intranet, etc.) to manage our electronic resources. In a highly distributed workflow and service provision environment, the UW Libraries sought a way to integrate this information with our local system and streamline our processes. Univ.
