Digital Library Program Receives Grant

09/18/2008

Indiana University's Digital Library Program received a federal grant of $481,987 to demonstrate the benefits of an emerging form of cataloging using IU's vast collections of sound recordings and scores at the Cook Music Library.


The Institute of Museum and Library Services, the primary source of federal support for the nation's libraries and museums, announced the National Leadership Grant Wednesday.


Responding to a challenge by the Library of Congress to test standards in the way libraries catalog and describe materials with multiple formats, IU's Digital Library Program will provide the nationwide library community a real-world case for testing and evaluation.


"This grant points to the expertise and leadership of IU's librarians," says Ruth Lilly University Dean of Libraries Pat Steele. "We're working to create innovative systems that will be used by the library community nationally for the ultimate benefit of researchers."
