Incorporating education standards into digital collections' metadata: A case study
This article describes and evaluates a pilot project at the Tennessee State Library and Archives (TSLA) that involved a collaborative effort among the Education Outreach, Public Services and Digital Work Group departments to engage effectively with and deliver primary resource materials to K-12 teachers and their students, focusing primarily on an application that would not require teachers to visit the State Library and Archives in person, but instead to interact with these resources online. The article describes a collaborative research workflow and process that began in 2014 at TSLA and involved a content management system functionality (CONTENTdm's Custom Queries feature). The article outlines the incentive for the project, the participants, the process, the implementation and experience of the functionality, and the initial results and next steps. The article demonstrates how collaborations between digital collections, research staff and outreach offer opportunities to engage with and assist teachers in creative and applicable ways.
