Supporting faculty research through collaborative digital projects : the Mongolian Altai inventory

by Simic, Julia, Hierholzer, Kirstin, Estlund, Karen

Abstract

This article provides an overview of a collaborative project between the University of Oregon Libraries, Infographics Lab, and an Art History professor to create a virtual research guide, Archaeology and Landscape in the Altai Mountains of Mongolia, and accompanying digital image archives. This project serves a model for preserving humanities data and creates a collaborative strategy for presenting faculty research output in a new media environment. In addition to the typical challenges faced in digital projects, the specialized nature of the content and multiple participants with varied areas of expertise added additional challenges. Equipped with lessons learned, a new model can be created for libraries to support and preserve faculty research.
