American West

"New Frontiers in the Digital Library: Social and Ecological Diversity of the American West" was a multi-year project to create a virtual collection drawing from the resources of major libraries, archives, and museums. The project was funded by a $1 million grant from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation. A number of reports were created that documented the extensive end user studies that were conducted and the research into a variety of metadata issues, including OAI harvesting, automated topical clustering, and date normalization.
