Project launch: Minnesota Water Research Digital Library
This week PALS staff met with staff of the Minnesota Water Research Digital Library (MNWRL), which is located in St. Paul, MN. PALS is particularly excited to begin this project. MNWRL’s digital objects are PDFs documents. MNWRL is unique in that they will provide PALS with a chance to use Islandora’s citation functionality, and show its value in a new area.
Minnesota Water Research Library “is a user-friendly, searchable inventory of water research relevant to Minnesota, with emphasis on publications from 2000 forward. The Library provides one-stop access to all types of water research, enabling water managers, researchers, engaged citizens and others to easily find, share, and coordinate research to support their efforts to protect, conserve, manage and restore water in Minnesota.”

A goal of the Minnesota Water Research Library is to become a model for other state agencies looking for a digital asset management solution. If interested, please feel free to contact PALS here and we can put you in touch with staff at the Minnesota Water Research Library.

Everyone is really excited to roll up sleeves and dig in to provide a new digital repository solution!
