Digital Collections Goals

  • Develop digital collections to support research and digital scholarship at UW Bothell
  • Document social justice work and scholarship at UW Bothell
  • Provide online access to materials not available elsewhere in response to UW Bothell faculty and student curricular and research needs
  • Support UW Bothell faculty-student partnerships and projects through digital library, curatorial, and archiving services
  • Provide an enduring platform for sharing the work of UW Bothell faculty and researchers
  • Contribute to UW Bothell community-building through digital collections of local importance

Digital Collections Selection Criteria

  • Collection goals and content are aligned with UW Bothell, UWB/CC Library, and UW Libraries mission statements and strategic goals, especially anti-racist and social justice priorities
  • Collection materials are valuable to the UW Bothell academic community, and are not available online elsewhere
  • Collection materials can be available openly online, with signed Deeds of Gift and/or Agreements from all donors and creators (all UW Bothell digital collections are open)
  • Content in UW Bothell digital collections is typically born-digital and the result of new knowledge production closely connected to digital scholarship work.
  • Faculty are asked to participate actively in digital collections development, metadata creation, and website design and content, and to commit to project quality and completion in partnership with the UW Bothell Library
  • Projects based solely on digitizing UW Bothell or UW Libraries materials will be directed to other Libraries' units
