Taming a Wild Workflow and Domesticating our Digital Data



Nancy Allmang, P J. Deutsch


This case study of a digital collection illustrates how the Information Services Division of Technology Services at NIST formulated a requirements analysis and development plan for a model system. The model knowledge management publications system integrates an all-electronic manuscript submission and approval system for authors with a bibliographic database of agency publications and a digital library. The presentation touches on specifications to streamline workflow and digitize publications.
