Abstract
  • This paper describes the development of a course on Digital Libraries taught in Fall 2018 in the Library Management Department at the University of Library Studies and Information Technologies (ULSIT). The instructor, an Associate Professor and Digital Projects Librarian at Oregon State University in the United States, received a U.S. Fulbright Award to teach and conduct research on digital libraries and open access in Bulgaria. The course focuses on practical methodologies and techniques for creating and managing digital libraries. Topics include digital library evaluation; digital library software systems, technologies and tools; metadata and organization; project management for digitization; digital library workflows; digitization techniques and best practices; access to and use of digital libraries; digital preservation; and copyright considerations, all with a focus on the creation and management of open access repository-based digital libraries. In-class activities, discussions, and assignments that provide hands-on experience in digital library development are described as well as the ways that the course might benefit students in their future work in libraries. The author describes the assignment of readings that focus on real-world practical digital library documentation. The author’s background in digital libraries and how that is brought to bear on the course content is also described.
