Gale Geek: What’s It Like Working with Gale?
March 14, 2014 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
The development of Air & Space and Smithsonian Magazine Archive, the first collection to launch within Smithsonian Collections Online, was a fairly straightforward process. Building and digitizing the archives that are launching this spring and in future years are not so straightforward. Nancy Gwinn, Director of the Smithsonian Institution Libraries, joins the Gale Geek as this week’s Expert to share what it’s like working with a publisher like Gale, what internal hurdles need to be overcome, how content is managed, and the role that conservation assessment and repair work play in digitizing these collections onsite at the Smithsonian.
