CONDOR MS FLOWCHART MID-MI DIGITAL PRACTITIONERS CMU- SEPT. 18, 2014 BY MARIAN MATYN, ARCHIVIST, ASSIST. PROF.
WHY THIS PRESENTATION TOPIC? Manuscripts collection (Rivard) opened cans of worms. Problems led to concerns, discussion, group meetings: Surprise! Lots of people in several depts are involved with our digitizing projects This seems unusual. Why is this the case at CMU? How does it work? Who does what? What is on CONDOR [CMU’s digital repository]?
CONDOR BACKGROUND: PHASE I Oct. 23, 2007 Implementation Plan for an Academic Division Repository brain child of the then Assoc. Dean Anne Casey, Ruth Helwig (Lib Systs Lib), Pamela Grudzien (Head, Tech Srvs) for faculty research, papers, etc. cutting edge like Harvard, MIT support from administration and IT 2008-2009 many administrators retired Depts and faculty: tenure/promotion, copyright issues (staff researched), stealing creativity, against bylaws, union bargaining team involved many depts afraid undergrad papers deposited might not be publishable in future Anne left CMU May 2009
CONDOR BACKGROUND: PHASE II New Assoc. Dean Richard Cochrane 7/09-6/13 Clarke Historical Library primary populator with archival collections *academic papers, research still accepted (copyright still researched) funding from existing OCLC account so used contentdm staffing became widespread: from those who were available, interested

CD copies made at both dpi for patron use and backup. d. CDs get accessioned by Chris. Go to Marian for processing, cataloging. 4.Pat sends scans to Carly/Sandra. Go into queue folders to be uploaded to CONDOR. 5. If step 1 is skipped, Carly/Sandra ask Sandy, where is the template? 6. Sandy says- Hey, it’s a manuscript, ask Marian. Go back to step 1.
MS WORK FLOWCHART 7. Sandy reviews, Marian amends, Sandy approves template draft. Template includes info from catalog record, info about scans and copies made at different dpis.

CHALLENGES Many tech challenges ongoing Major change in IT Library staff this summer Marketing/advertising/awareness of digital information Unrealistic expectations of users May switch to 2-tier internet which may impact search results Especially for thesis/dissertations – size and cost of storage Security/access/storage of digital collections Will OCLC continue to support repository storage and access? Rapidly changing, highly technical changes in jobs, job skills and duties, how and where to learn skills well Effectiveness of sites over time Changes in staff, administration, support Communication between units Funding
FUTURE ADDITIONS TO CONDOR Oral histories Films Digital university records Others?
