About the Digital Media Repository
The Digital Media Repository, a project of the Ball State University Libraries, provides a centralized, coordinated, and user-focused resource to serve the teaching, learning, and research needs of students, faculty, and researchers at Ball State and beyond. It serves as a platform to bring together the digital collections and activities of the University Libraries in a single, cohesive, and accessible Web-based environment that also provides access to external digital resources to support the educational process.
The Ball State University Libraries Digital Media Repository Working Group has made available the following documentation regarding its Digital Initiatives program:
Cardinal Core: Metadata Template and Instructions for Application to Ball State University Libraries Digital Media Repository Collections
File Retention and Organization Plan, outlining an electronic file retention and organization plan for Digital Initiatives electronic collection assets.
File Storage Workflow for Electronic Collection Assets, outlining workflows for the management of electronic collection assets held by the Ball State University Libraries Digital Initiative, tracking the life cycle of an electronic record from creation/accession to storage.

Funding for CONTENTdm, the digital content management system used for the Digital Media Repository, was made possible through the generous support of the Friends of the Alexander M. Bracken Library.
