    Preserving Podcasts in Institutional Repositories
    (Association of College and Research Libraries, 2023) Collins, Valerie M.; Moore, Erik A.
    This chapter introduces the University of Minnesota Archives’ efforts to locate and ingest University of Minnesota podcasts into the institutional repository, the University Digital Conservancy (UDC). The inclusion of podcast media in IRs rethinks traditional formats in repositories by focusing on non-text-based content. This undertaking extends the IR’s reach to local creators and new contributors at the institution while broadening its reach beyond an academic audience. By looking past traditional IR scholarly content to include podcasts produced by university departments, institutional repositories can also capture a particular record of the institution that might otherwise be lost: the sound of the university engaged in its mission of research, teaching, and outreach.

    Institutional Repositories for Public Engagement: Creating a Common Good Model for an Engaged Campus
    (2020) Moore, Erik A.; Collins, Valerie M.; Johnston, Lisa R.
    Most higher-education institutions strive to be publicly engaged and community centered. These institutions leverage faculty, researchers, librarians, community liaisons, and communication specialists to meet this mission, but they have largely underutilized the potential of institutional repositories. Academic institutions can use institutional repositories to provide open access and long-term preservation to institutional gray literature, research data, university publications, and campus research products that have tangible, real-world applications for the communities they serve. Using examples from the University of Minnesota, this article demonstrates how making this content discoverable, openly accessible, and preserved for the future through an institutional repository not only increases the value of this publicly-engaged work but also creates a lasting record of a university’s public engagement efforts and contributes to the mission of the institution.

    Listening to Our Collections: Preserving Records of University-Based Educational Radio Stations in Campus Archives
    (Journal of Archival Organization, 2020) Moore, Erik A.; Toov, Rebecca
    University-based educational stations transmitted programming to local audiences throughout the U.S. Surviving records remain in the custody of university archives but remain unavailable due to the complicated nature of radio collections and their audio components, placing them at risk of loss. Using the University of Minnesota station KUOM as a case study, this paper documents archivists’ successful advocacy for the processing and preservation of historical radio materials. The authors offer reflections on broader strategies that archivists may employ to help process and digitize materials documenting the history of university-based radio within their collections.

    Building a Trustworthy System: Resources, Policies, and Management Structures—Understanding Our Trustworthiness
    (Rowman & Littlefield, 2016) Moore, Erik A.
    In 2014, the University of Minnesota Libraries completed a year-long process of upgrading the underlying technology and reviewing the supporting policies, procedures, and resources of our intuitional repository, the University Digital Conservancy. Employing an iterative approach to managing, the technology migration and policy review proved to be an efficient method to effectively deal with challenges and new opportunities as part of the overall process. The results are a repository system built upon the foundations of the professional standards set by our peers and the trust of the university community in the University Libraries. The migration process proved to serve as a type of self-assessment allowing us to evaluate our repository in a way that we had not done before. The resulting outcomes to the Digital Conservancy program include the ability to remain current with our technological offerings, to be agile in our responses to new demands from our community, and to be more transparent in our daily activities in an effort to be a more trustworthy system.

    Strategies for Implementing a Mass Digitization Program
    (Practical Technology for Archives, 2014-11) Moore, Erik A.
    In 2008, the University of Minnesota Archives developed a low-cost, in-house solution for routine mass digitization of university publications, reports, and records. The strategies offered in this paper highlight a practical program for the mass digitization of organizational archival records using a rapid capture process that is replicable regardless of the size or resources of the repository. It will review the establishment of the rapid capture workflow at the University of Minnesota Archives; provide details on how it functions, including equipment information, scanner settings, and workflow procedures; explain the selection process for scanning; describe how it has helped to create inreach opportunities; and finally, examine how it has changed not only daily operations, but the perspective on what it means to provide broad access to the collections.

    University Digital Conservancy: A Platform to Publish, Share, and Preserve the University's Scholarship
    (University of Minnesota, 2012-06) Johnston, Lisa R; Moore, Erik A.; Petsan, Beth
    The University Digital Conservancy (UDC) is a web-based tool that provides free, worldwide access to research and scholarship contributed by faculty and staff at the University of Minnesota, including research papers, pre-prints, presentations and research data - often meeting funding open access mandates (ie. NIH, NSF). It is also a showcase for original student works -- such as dissertations, masters and professional papers, and honors theses -- increasing visibility to our teaching and learning outputs. Finally, the UDC is an institutional repository (IR) built to preserve digital university assets that have traditionally gone to the University Archives, such as department newsletters and administrative reports. The UDC software provides searchable, full-text access to deposited work that will rank highly in web search engines (like Google) and also ensures long-term access to content with permanent urls (no more broken links). This library-run repository began in 2007 and now contains over 23,000 digital works that have been downloaded over 1.5 million times. (Download stats as of May 1, 2012.)

    Birds of a Feather: Some Fundamentals on the Archives–Ecology Paradigm
    (Association of Canadian Archivists, 2007) Moore, Erik A.
    This article reviews the concepts of preservation, conservation, and ecology in order to establish archival theory and practice, and environmental philosophy and protection as intellectually related domains, not merely analogous subjects. Moving beyond the organic metaphor peppered throughout the professional literature, it challenges archivists to look more widely at the parallel ideas and applications in archives and ecology that can influence and inform their decision-making process, and encourages archivists to move further away from the positivism that has directed much of their activities toward a more pluralistic paradigm evident in the biological and physical sciences. The outcome is a fundamental understanding of the theoretical intersection of archives and ecology coupled with models that can guide practical applications in appraisal and access for archives.
