Slicing and Dicing the Digital Preservation and Dissemination of Land Grant Research: A Survey of and Model for Digital Collections of Agricultural Experiment Station and Extension Publications Academic Article uri icon



  • The management and dissemination of agricultural experiment station and cooperative extension documents have been a challenge for over 100 years. Digitization of these documents, as well as the standardization and public dissemination that such projects can provide, represent both additional obstacles and possible solutions for addressing these challenges. The authors survey the current landscape of digital collections for agricultural experiment station and cooperative extension documents, after which they present a recent, efficient digitization project at the University of Idaho Library as a possible template for other institutions looking to digitize similar documents.
