  • Create an email distribution list to foster communication and information sharing across OCUL institutions.


  • Build on the work begun at OCUL Digital Curation Summit by providing members with an open wiki space to share information about work that they have under way; work that they hope to undertake and opportunities for collaboration; policies, procedures, and best practices documents; specialized equipment at their institutions that could be made available to other OCUL libraries; a bibliography of available works on digital curation; and other related information of interest to the larger OCUL digitization community.


  • Hold a recurring event (see budget) focused on digitization and digital curation to provide an opportunity to share knowledge and experience, and to network with colleagues across institutions. This could be a broad, summit-­type event, and/or a day focused on a specific topic. In consideration of the logistics of this event, please see the attached budget document.


  • Identify, from consultation with the OCUL membership, opportunities for training in digital curation and preservation. These could be programs led by people in OCUL libraries or by other experts on a particular topic. Areas such as digital forensics and data curation, for example, are taking on importance in digital preservation work; few OCUL institutions have expertise in this area, and arranging training for a single institution may be cost prohibitive.


  • Identify, from consultation with the OCUL membership, opportunities for shared infrastructure (e.g., platforms and tools such as Islandora, Hydra, Archivematica or methods for cross­-institution discovery of digital content). Where support for shared infrastructure is identified, serve as point of contact with OCUL Standing Committees around proposal/implementation details.
