Continue to develop a robust and accessible digital collections repository that effectively gathers and promotes the scholarship and digital collections produced by the university community Specific Projects & Activities Dspace - 1) install page-turning module; 2) customized item layout Dspace - install page-turning module; customized item layout Background
Digital Collections at Texas State includes the Institutional Repository, which is a repository for scholarship produced by academics at TXSTATE, and other digital objects from collections at TXSTATE such as the University Archives and the Wittliff Collections. The platform hosting Digital Collections at Texas State is Dspace. Our installation of Dspace is managed through a partnership between the library, Technology Resources, and @mire, a private company specializing in Dspace installations and customization. TXSTATE mainly provides system level and hardware support.
Programming, such as functionality and look and feel customization is provided by @mire. The University pays @mire based on programming hours required to complete a project. Specific Projects & Activities Dspace - install page-turning module; customized item layout Look and Feel improvements Jeanne Hazzard, Lauren Goodley, and Megan North worked together to come up with changes to the overall look and feel to for the overall and site their individual collections. The
changes were submitted to @mire for development of a quote. We are also requesting Dspace be upgraded to the latest version 4.1 It is expected @mire will be able to complete the work by the end of the Fall 2014 semester. The upgrade and enhancements will require extensive testing by library staff before they are copied to the production server. Scholarship & Research II Key Initiatives

A lot has been accomplished on this Initiative during the first two years. Accomplishments include: Creating the Digital & Web Services department and realigning staff from Computer & Information Services, Continuing Resources, and Cataloging & Metadata Services. Identifying space and infrastructure requirements, and creating new spaces for digitization in part of the bindery area. Developing a GOJA for a new position, Digital Media Specialist,
and hiring an enthusiastic and qualified person to fill it. Identifying needs and ordering specialized digitization equipment. Organize and staff a department to support digital and web services Additional Detail for Year 3 1) Hire Programmer Analyst The University Library has needed additional programming support for a long time. A new GOJA was developed for programmer with a variety of skills, but mainly strengths in web development, such as scripting and markup with HTML and XML. Help with Web Development needs for platforms such as Gato, EDS, and Dspace,
working with ITS and TR as necessary. Help create SQL queries for Sierra Develop scripts to manage digital objects and associated metadata and automate creation and ingestion into display and preservation repositories. Another key duty of this position is to be a backup for management of Library Applications such as Ezproxy, Illiad, Eres, Archivists Toolkit and Archon.

Organize and staff a department to support digital and web services Additional Detail for Year 3 2) Increase student worker allocation: Digital & Web Services plans to use student workers to increase the productivity of the unit. Jeremy has extensive experience managing students in the digitization lab at the University of North Texas, where a majority of the digitization is performed by students. Organize and staff a department to support digital and web services
Additional Detail for Year 3 3) Spaces for Digitization and Equipment: The transfer of content on magnetic media to a more permanent format is of critical concern to archives. Audio cassettes, reel to reel tapes and VHS tapes are in danger of deteriorating beyond salvaging. Depending on the type of tape used, many recording from the 1970s and earlier are already lost. The Southwestern Writers Collection has hundreds of cassettes in its collection, such as recordings authors used during interviews. The University Archives has a number of recordings including oral histories of persons
notable to the University. The main digitization lab and department heads office were created in 2013. A new room for Audio/Visual digitization is being created adjacent to to the digitization lab. Once skills are mastered and procedures developed the Digital & Web Services department plans to offer its Audio/Visual digitation services to other units and faculty and help preserve materials in danger of being lost forever.
