LAMP (CRL): Collaborative preservation of Brazilian primary source materials

  • Author(s): Schadl, Suzanne M.
  • Abstract: This presentation offers the historical example of the LAMP collaboration which lead to the Brazilian Government Documents collection at the Center for Research Libraries. The purpose is to describe the Latin American Materials Project and to situate the development of this Brazilian archive within current discussions of deep collaboration. As this project evolved in the 1990s and early 2000s, librarians from several institutions collaborated deeply to facilitate scholarly access, expand the corpus through digital discovery, implement mechanisms for bibliographic and structured access, explore levels of demand and patterns of use, and refine processes for creating digital image files from preservation microfilm. The current focus in libraries on data, device neutral digital services, evolving openness in higher education, student success initiatives, competency-based learning, Altmetrics and digital humanities is part of a natural progression connecting the preservation projects of LAMP with innovative ideas for access promoted by LARRP.
