You Are Not Alone: Statistics from Bridge2Hyku’s digital collections environment data collection survey


As part of the deliverables for phase one of the Bridge2Hyku [B2H] project, funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (LG-70-17-0217-17), the project team at the University of Houston surveyed grant partner institutions about their digital collections. The survey was designed to collect data related to, but not limited to: content types, metadata schema, digital collection production workflows, preservation considerations, stakeholder considerations, and more. The poster will showcase statistics gleaned from the survey that highlight trends in the overall preparedness, or unpreparedness, of institutions transitioning their data in the digital space, particularly onto open source platforms.
