Abstract (up to 200 words):
Representatives from UNC-CH and NC State will discuss digital library development in support of teaching and learning at their respective institutions. The Digital Library Project at UNC-CH is working to institute a set of web-based tools and services to help instructors and researchers manage their media collections and promote resource-sharing across disciplines. Services include guidelines and solutions for the digitization, storage, retrieval and effective use of images, audio files and other digital objects. Digital Library Services, now being piloted in seven departments on campus, is more than just a repository for storing digital assets. The infrastructure makes it possible for scholars to present these materials in ways that promote understanding and learning. NCSU's Digital Library Initiatives Department leads the library in creating new digital services and collections, as well as new initiatives that integrate advanced web-based and multimedia resources into teaching and learning. The Digital Media Laboratory enables users to create and develop digital instructional and research materials, and the Usability Research Laboratory offers state-of-the-art equipment capable of collecting video, audio and computer data in real time for observation and analysis. The department works closely with NCSU's Learning Technology Service.
