But Where Can I Find It?: A Look at the Collaborative Evolution of Access to IIT’s TechNews

Since 1928 TechNews of the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) has documented the comings and goings of the history of IIT’s ever-changing campus and its students. Managing this constantly expanding cache of documents has been difficult, particularly with the advancements of technology. When this project first launched, these materials were only available to be viewed via scanning requests. Currently, the team is in the process of making these items fully searchable via OCR, providing a cache of linked data that will be immeasurably useful to staff and patrons alike. This project briefing will discuss the decisions made along the way to mature this project into the final platform as well as in-depth description of the collaboration necessary, and how these collaborations have evolved over the years resulting in the current work-in-progress, a final home for the archive of this important institutional resource.
