A framework of guidance for building good digital collections

[December 2001]


Abstract: The following report was prepared by members of the Digital Library Forum, a group convened by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) to discuss issues relating to the implementation and management of networked digital libraries. Members quickly identified collection quality as a critical aspect of digital library management and interoperability, and this understanding forms the foundation of the report. The Framework is intended as a resource for grant applicants, IMLS and other federal funding agencies, rather than as a set of requirements.
