J3: Capturing Your Local Area Legal History: A Snapshot in Time

Target Audience: Law librarians interested in developing a digital collection with multimedia features; specifically librarians interested in developing procedures for collecting, preserving, and providing access to local area legal history in a digital format

Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to plan, implement, and manage a digital archive collection with multimedia features.
2. Participants will be prepared to assess and use digital collection management software.

In 2010, The Cleveland-Marshall College of Law Library collaborated with the Cleveland Memory Project to create Legal Landmarks, a digital archival collection featuring a selection of Greater Cleveland's groundbreaking court cases. The speakers will discuss the procedures and practices established to create an institutional archive that collects, preserves, and provides access to local area legal history in a digital format with multimedia features, including financial considerations, staffing decisions, hardware purchases, and digital collection management software. The speakers will also address effective strategies for overcoming challenges that may arise, including creating a controlled vocabulary, assigning metadata, and overcoming copyright issues.
