Library of Congress Publishes the Digital Collections Management Compendium
Jesse Johnston writes for the Library of Congress’ blog, The Signal, that “the Digital Content Management section [staffers] have been working with experts from across many divisions of the Library of Congress to collate and assemble guidance and policy that guide or reflect the practices that the Library uses to manage digital collections. I am excited to share that today the results of that work have launched as the Digital Collections Management Compendium (DCMC).”
There is a new DCMC section of the library’s website presenting “general policies and practices for digital content management. This resource is primarily a policy resource for staff at the Library of Congress, but we are also sharing it openly and publicly as a resource for colleagues at other institutions.” The DCMC elements are organized into three main areas: Digital Formats, Inventory and Custody, and Access.
