As part of the IMLS grant we have to submit a digital products data management plan. As a team, we have not discussed such a plan in any specific detail, and I have never actually had to create such a plan without strong institutional support (meaning someone else always had the answers for me). I think everyone on the team should take a look at the document (at least the questions being asked) just so you are informed about the current state of digital data management in the museum field.
I’ve asked Lana to chime in with any help she can offer to the completion of the form. I would also ask if any of you have experience or suggestions for it, please let me know. You can update the form (Specificationsdigital) on dropbox and post your comments here.
I’m going to attempt to embed the document below.
