      A Framework of Guidance for Building Good Digital Collections

      NISO Framework Working Group

      National Information Standards Organization, December 2007

       

      As the digital environment matured, the focus of digital collection-building efforts shifted toward the creation of useful and relevant collections that served the needs of one or more communities of users. The bar of "goodness" was raised to include levels of usability, accessibility, and fitness for use appropriate to the anticipated user group(s). Digital collection development has now evolved and matured to a stage, where simply serving useful digital collections effectively to a known constituency is not sufficient. Issues of cost/value, sustainability, and trust have emerged as critical success criteria for good digital collections. Objects, metadata, and collections must now be viewed not only within the context of the projects that created them, but as building blocks that others can reuse, repackage, repurpose, and build services upon. "Goodness" now demands interoperability, reusability, persistence, verification, documentation, and support for intellectual property rights.
