Building on the Cornell-Yale Model
Digitizing the Radicalism Collection at Michigan State University
Philosophische Fakultät I
This article has two purposes. One is to summarize the elements of the Cornell-Yale digitization model in a way that would be useful to other institutions planning to follow their effort. The people involved with the Cornell and Yale projects have done an exceptional job in documenting their work. They have been the Lewis and Clarks of the digitization process. But because they were the first to explore this unkown territory, not every facet of their experience applies to those who follow the path they blazed. It is necessary to see which parts of their experience are applicable to a large state university like Michigan State University (MSU). The other purpose of this article is to show how MSU‘s experience has expanded the Cornell-Yale model. In this MSU is following their tradition of documenting features that could be useful and relevant to to others.
