Log Number: LG-252326-OLS-22
The University of Idaho Library will establish CollectionBuilder, an inclusive digital exhibit platform that provides educational opportunities for librarians and enables the creation of sustainable, data-driven digital exhibit websites that feature and contextualize unique collections from across the world. The project team will continue building and supporting the community and codebase that underpin CollectionBuilder by supporting a staff position solely devoted to growing the CollectionBuilder community; providing travel funds to enable the project team to teach and promote CollectionBuilder; and implementing a program to solicit structured feedback and suggestions from their target communities. Developed by librarians for librarians, CollectionBuilder's minimal-computing approach offers a sustainable and pragmatic alternative to traditional digital collection platforms.
