Dr. Katrina Fenlon of the College of Information Studies at the University of Maryland proposes "Sustaining Digital Community Collections," a three-year Early Career Development research project to investigate collaborative workflows of collection development and maintenance, as well as identify roles that cultural heritage institutions may play to help realize community-determined, community-led strategies for sustaining digital collections. This project will develop: models of emergent development and maintenance workflows for digital collections; roles for libraries and archives in those workflows; and a toolkit for stakeholder communities and memory institutions.
