Draft Use Cases and Recommended Practices for Reuse Assessment: The Archival Perspective
Elizabeth Joan Kelly with Ayla Stein Kenfield. “Draft Use Cases and Recommended Practices for Reuse Assessment: The Archival Perspective.” Society of American Archivists Annual Meeting, online. Asynchronous, August 2020. https://archives2020.
Archive and digital library practitioners measure "use" of our digital collections using access metrics but we rarely measure their "reuse" in research, social media, instruction, and other formats. In this session, the IMLS-funded D-CRAFT team will share ongoing work on developing a reuse assessment toolkit, and begin collecting valuable perspectives, feedback, and input from archivists in order to ensure that the toolkit components meet the needs of caretakers, arrangers, and describers of digital cultural heritage.
