Lessons Learned: Takeaways from a Seven-Year Digitization Project at the National Institute of Standards and Technology
Katelynd E. Bucher
With the completion of a large-scale project comes the inevitable question: what have we learned, and how can we apply it in the future? The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Information Services Office (ISO) looks back on lessons learned during the completion of its project to digitize and preserve its collection of grey literature published by NIST and its predecessor, the National Bureau of Standards (NBS). NISTs legacy digitization project supported ISOs mission to create, maintain, and disseminate a knowledge base that supports NIST scientific, engineering, and technical research. This paper examines that project over the course of seven years, its goals and lessons learned, and the path it has laid for digitization and preservation of NIST publications in the future.
