Resources for Projects Developing Digital Products
A Framework of Guidance for Building Good Digital Collections presents general principles for planning and implementing digital projects and is currently made available online by the National Information Standards Organization here.
In addition, we participate in the Federal Agencies Digitization Guidelines Initiative (FADGI), a collaborative effort by federal agencies to define common standards, guidelines, methods, and best practices for creating digital collections. Click here to reach the FADGI website, which includes a growing list of links to relevant standards, recommendations, and other resources. While this list is not exhaustive—nor do we endorse any single resource—applicants considering digital projects may find the information useful.
