The updated Latin American Digital Initiatives (LADI) repository has launched! This version of the repository is the culmination of three years of work for our team, and builds on the first version of LADI, which launched in 2015. The new repository uses a Fedora 5/Islandora 8/Drupal 8 technology stack, is available in English, Spanish, and Portuguese, and contains 7 archival collections from Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Colombia, and Brazil.
I was primarily responsible for selecting digitization equipment, designing digitization workflows, processing digitized collections, and publishing materials in the repository. These were only a small part of all the work that went into this project, however: it also required expert administrative navigation, metadata planning and refinement, and extensive custom software development.
