Title: Thematic digital libraries at the University of Porto : metadata integration over a repository infrastructure
Issue Date: 2009
Abstract: The University of Porto has a well-established set of specialized libraries serving theresearch and student population of its 14 schools. Thematic digital libraries can be valuable fororganizing specific collections and for supporting emergent communities. This work focuses ontwo case studies, one in the area of the Fine Arts and the other in the area of Food andNutrition. For building both digital libraries we propose to use the existing university repositoryinfrastructure and to establish a metadata workflow that makes use of available descriptions inthe library catalogues and in the university information system. We expect that such anapproach, which takes into account the institutional context and resources, can be used in othercollections at our university and inspire similar initiatives elsewhere.
