          Abstract

          Through an Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS)-funded grant called Expanding Access to Biodiversity Literature (EABL), the Biodiversity Heritage Library (BHL) has adapted its digitization and metadata workflows to accommodate small organizations outside the consortium that would like to contribute unique content to BHL but lack the resources to do so. This presents several challenges: ingesting born digital and already-digitized material; training partners on BHL's metadata creation tool, Macaw; the need for expanded copyright metadata and display fields in the user interface; and defining articles and other bibliographic “segments.” This presentation will discuss the efforts of EABL to address these challenges and provide data for evaluating progress toward the grant’s stated goals.
