Collaboration and Community: Creating the Atla Digital Library for Collecting and Connecting in Religion and Theology

Feedback form is now closed.
In 2017 Atla partnered with Notch8 to create a Samvera-based digital library. Members of Atla contribute metadata for their existing digital collections in furtherance of the goal of creating an open access portal to search and discover diverse resources in all aspects of religion and theology to support research, education and information needs of the Atla Digital Library’s users worldwide. Through Atla’s collaboration with Notch8, a variety of metadata importers were created to facilitate ingest of metadata from libraries who may have collections in everything from Internet Archive to Omeka to ContentDM. Further, the partnership saw the implementation of an IIIF viewer to not only support a CLIR funded project of the Christ Church Preservation Trust but also potentially enhance interaction with other capable collections. During this presentation, attendees will learn more about this unique digital library configuration supported by a library member association and consortium and how the partnership with Notch8 supports open infrastructure through the contribution of code and other resources back to a software community.
