Treasury of World’s Fair Art & Architecture: Selection with an Eye to Traditional Cooperative Cataloging Programs

Virtual Poster

The Treasury of World’s Fair Art & Architecture was digitally published by the UMD Office of Digital Collections & Research in 2006. While is utilized the most cutting edge technological platforms, it was strategically designed to feed into Traditional Co-operative Cataloging Programs. This poster will discuss the strategic value in all phases of collaborative digital projects to attend to traditional library practices. From the inception of this project, the potential contribution of unestablished names to the National Authority File was valued greatly by library administration and was key to demonstrating that this small project had a high return in mainstream value, significantly raising its profile as a prioritized project.
