PALS is excited to announce that we have formed a new partnership with Leech Lake Tribal College to implement their Islandora digital repository. This is only possible because of the hard work put in by Leech Lake Tribal College staff that resulted in them getting selected as a grant recipient of the American Indian College Fund’s Traditional Native Arts and Energy/Water Infrastructure Program, with the proposed project Renovations for the Leech Lake Tribal College Archive Room.
As part of this project PALS will help Leech Lake set up their online digital repository to support their goal of digitally preserving Leech Lake cultural heritage material. This project will respect the need for and observe cultural protocols. To this end, PALS will be developing Cultural Protocol functionality for Islandora that will allow material to be restricted from public view as needed.
The grant funds will also be used to develop online exhibit functions to support the usability of Leech Lake Tribal College’s online repository.
Hannah Buckland, Director of Library Services at Leech Lake Tribal College, and PALS staff are very much looking forward to this project.
Please contact Hannah Buckland at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any further questions on this project, or contact PALS here if you have any questions about Islandora.
