Marketing Archival Collections on Your Library Catalog with No Pennies

Sometimes archival collections are quietly kept in a special collection. Archives are a source for historical evidence and factual accounts of activities. They are our recorded memory, story tellers, and are documents for people to provide valuable sources for research and our community. The rise of emerging platforms for archival collections is to make them accessible and discoverable; however, current solutions are enchanting and yet pricey.

This program gives some insight on how to increase visibility of your archival collections through your online catalog and illustrates how to make a bridge between Omeka, archival platform, and Alam, library system, by implementing Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PHM) for repository interoperability. The OAI protocol allows the metadata in Omeka to be discovered in Primo to effectively market our archival collections with no extra cost.
