Background & Objectives
Project Background
Te Historical Society o Pennsylvania, hereaer HSP, began to direct attention towards provid-ing new methods o access or its collections in late 2009 with the beginning o the DigitalCenter or Americana project series.Te rst project in this series ocused on the acquisition o equipment, systems and skilledpersonnel to provide the ability to process physical collections or use as digital, online col-lections. Tese investments in resources set the stage to digitize and process 52 Civil War eracollections via signpost and MPLP methodologies.In summer 2010, the second Digital Center o Americana project began. Tis iteration ocusedon 21 collections representing the breadth o HSP’s ethnic an immigrant history holdings.Tese collections were chosen not only due to their high research value and lack o digitalormat, but also to provide comparable test cases or a user study. Tese collections were pro-cessed and digitized in a mixture o processing and digitization levels, which are describedbelow in the Project Goals and Objectives section.
Project Objectives
Te Historical Society o Pennsylvania, hereaer HSP, seeks to conduct a study to assess thecomparative validity o two digitization processes or acquiring content collections.
In relationship to developing an interace and user experience or collection access, it will also:
MPLP with signpost methods are used by libraries, archives and other curatorial institutions toreduce or eliminate the backlogs that oen accompany the digital acquisition o physical col-lections. Tese delays are due to the extensive time and resources required to execute the FPMmethodology.Te results o this study will be used to:1. Produce a study researching the comparative validity o MPLP and FPM. Te reportwill be released and shared with the global archival community. Te goal o this eort isto help other institutions in making balanced decisions on processing their collections,maximizing sta resources and serving their user constituency.2. Using the results o the aorementioned research, redesign the end user interaces anduser experience o the online catalog and the digital library (discover.hsp.org and digitalli-brary.hsp.org, respectively)
