The “Louisiana Digital Library (LDL) as Data” project allowed LDL institutions to collaboratively explore policies and practices for the creation of metadata that support collections as data.

During this webinar, hear about the technical and community-focused developments that resulted from the Mellon-funded project.

Leah Duncan will focus on project outcomes that connect to specific principles defined in the Santa Barbara Statement on Collections as Data:


      1. developments that support metadata quality;
      2. developments that support standardized terms of use; and
      3. developments that support ongoing ethical commitments to communities represented in our digital collections.
