CNI Podcast: Stephen Davis on Turning Curators Into Web Publishers

Columbia University Libraries, like most research libraries, continues to digitize and publish parts of its collections deemed to be of value to researchers and scholars. Recently, however, the organization has begun to implement a strategy that more actively supports other programmatic needs of special collections, specifically the need to create online exhibitions as an adjunct to major brick and mortar exhibitions and expose digitally smaller portions of their collections that they wish to highlight for various reasons. In this interview, Stephen P. Davis, Director of the Libraries Digital Program Division for Columbia University Libraries, talks about the collaborative effort to create digitally viable exhibitions.
