Opening the Doors Wider is designed to develop new non-resident library patrons by offering them a discounted card for three consecutive years, with the discount decreasing over three years from 90% to 75% to 50%. During that time each library will use grant funds to complete the cost of the card, with the grant funds in part being used for programming and collection development that reflect the needs and interests of these new patrons. In addition, the three libraries request support to establish and maintain regular meetings that will insure that the discounted cards program is on target.
OSU will create a web-based tool, optimized for use in a mobile environment that takes the University of Oregon’s Building Oregon: Architecture of Oregon and the Pacific Northwest collection, and makes it accessible to users in a mobile app, leveraging the tools and capabilities that the mobile environment provide. Building Oregon is a traditional digital collection of approximately 20,000 images representing approximately 5,000 cultural properties from nearly 500 sites. Once the mobile tool has been created, OSU Libraries will release the framework on open source code repositories, like GitHub, for other libraries with digital collections to use to mount their own digital collections or repurpose existing digital collections in a mobile environment.
The Oregon Digital Newspaper Project will make the history of Oregon accessible to its citizens through the creation of an online historic Oregon newspaper collection. This funding covers the initial project with matching funds for digitization of 150,000 of historic newspaper pages (approx. 30 years of 12 rural weekly titles). An online newspaper archive will provide a window into the life of local Oregon communities a century or more ago. It will provide the opportunity to teach young people about the history of their communities and inspire them to research and write about our history. It will be freely available to anyone who can access the Internet from their home.
Next Generation Newspaper Preservation project provides the base equipment and infrastructure to continue to preserve Oregon’s newspaper content through digitization as the current microfilming infrastructure becomes obsolete. Following the recommendation in the Oregon State Library consultant’s report, “Oregon's Digital Collections: Recommendations,” this project extends the existing Oregon Digital Newspaper Program, which is primarily a microfilm digitization program to-date, by developing a process for preserving Oregon’s newspapers through direct digitization. The Next Generation Newspaper Preservation will acquire the equipment needed for direct digitization, work with three different Oregon newspapers to create a model digitization workflow for preservation, and develop a cost model of digitization for preservation of and access to Oregon’s newspapers.
This project will provide engaging, informative videos to Coos Bay patrons via YouTube that will connect them with youth-focused events in the library and the community. It will also provide high quality software and technology to Coos Bay teens that will allow them to become creators and to develop important digital media literacy skills.view top 100
