College / Administrative Unit: 
University Libraries
Date Started: 
January 2008
To coordinate the management of digital projects, effectively creating and centralizing a management structure for activities that are inherently decentralized. The formation of this Steering Committee serves as the first step toward a programmatic approach to the Libraries’ digital initiatives, moving away from the current project-based approach.

Goal: To set policy and procedures for digital projects.

Anticipated results:
* Develop a communication plan, including web resources to share updates and news of digital projects
* Establish efficiencies and standards
* Document digital production workflows
* Maximize resource discovery options
* Evaluate possible budgetary needs
* Exploit memberships in organizations such as the Digital Library Federation, EDUCAUSE, Society for Scholarly Publishing, platform user groups, etc.
