*Apologies for Cross Posting *

 The University of Maryland Libraries is delighted to announce the
launch of its digital collections portal at
<http://www.lib.umd.edu/digital/ >

This release marks two and a half years of work in the creation of a
repository that serves the teaching and research mission of the
University of Maryland Libraries. Many of the objects are digital
versions from Maryland's Special Collections (such as A Treasury of
World's Fairs Art and Architecture) or are new virtual collections (The
Jim Henson Works). Other collections (such as Films@UM) support the
teaching mission of the Libraries. This release also marks the
integration of electronically available finding aids, ArchivesUM, into
the repository architecture, creating a framework for digital objects to
be dynamically discovered from finding aids.

The repository is based on the Fedora platform, uses Lucene for
indexing, and Helix for streaming video. The repository features almost
2500 digital objects, with new objects added monthly. Object types
currently delivered include full text (both TEI and EAD), video, and
images. Objects can be discovered within a collection context or via a
search across multiple collections. Cross-collection discovery is
achieved through a common metadata scheme and controlled vocabulary.
This metadata scheme also provides for individual collections to have
more granular domain-specific metadata.

We welcome feedback and comments at

With all best wishes,

Susan Schreibman
