Library Quarterly Report FY23 Q1: July-Sept 2022

Cataloging, Collections and Technical Services
Adapting to COVID-19

Gil Kenner and Ken Winter began work on a "best practices" document to guide creation of library digital collections. The effort started with preparations for the Library User Group meeting but it tied into a discussion with Michaele White, VDOT's lead photographer in CO Communications, about the development of new archival photo collections in the Library Digital Collections site. In addition, at the request of Dr. John Miller, the library bought an additional ITE Trip Generation Manual (on behalf of UVA student and VDOT employee Khaled Alsumait) in order to get a unique login to the manual's "exclusive online content." This marked a departure from the library's long-standing procedure with regard to accessing licensed content this way.
