Eric Weig Gives KDL Update:
Last Friday Eric Weig, Director of Digital Library Services and the Kentucky Digital Library, gave a presentation to the Kentucky Virtual Library Alliance about the new Kentucky Digital Library interface and preservation repository. The new site, which will go live in the fall, utilizes open source tools to present users with a unique way of searching archival collections that is an improved experience from other online digital collections. The beta site is available at http://eris.uky.edu.
The site serves multiple types of material including manuscripts, books, maps, photographs, oral histories and newspapers. UK Libraries continues to work on developing tools and services to assist archivists around the state in contributing content to the site.
