- ItemActing Now to Enhance Performing Arts Emergency Preparedness: A White Paper(LYRASIS, 2017) Clareson, Thomas F.R.; Nyberg, SandraThe Andrew W. Mellon Foundation convened a group of experts from the arts and heritage communities on September 22, 2015, to consider strategies for strengthening emergency preparedness within the performing arts sector. In response to what was learned during that meeting about needs, resources, barriers and opportunities, LYRASIS, one of the participants in the convening, proposed a planning project to design a program to improve and increase emergency preparedness within the performing arts sector. This White Paper provides a summary of what was learned during the planning grant project. It is a snapshot of the state of emergency preparedness among performing arts organizations in the U.S. This snapshot forms the basis for recommendations to improve readiness that will be piloted through an implementation project during 2017-2019.

- ItemAdvancing 3D Digitization for Libraries, Museums, and Archives(LYRASIS; IUPUI, 2018) Johnson, Jennifer; Miller, Derek; Palmer, Kristi$29,500 to Indiana University - Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) to pilot 3D digitization and metadata conventions by: 1) Digitizing and describing objects of varying colors, shapes and sizes, with a variety of intended audiences 2) Documenting those processes 3) Establishing preliminary standards and workflows 4) Testing those preliminary standards and workflows and 5) Nationally vetting those preliminary standards. This work will underpin the beginnings of standardization of digital collections of library, museum, and archive 3D artifacts on a national scale.
- ItemAI for Archives: Using Facial Recognition to Enhance Metadata(LYRASIS; Florida International University, 2020) Bakker, Rebecca; Rowan, Kelley; Hu, Liting; Guan, Boyuan; Li, Zhongzhou; He, Ruizhe; Monge, Christine$25,000. The goal of this research project is to determine the most effective facial recognition application for use with digitized archive images from cultural heritage institutions and provide opportunities for future development. Florida International University computer scientists and librarians will conduct qualitative assessments of facial recognition application models. This project addresses the issue of incomplete metadata within digital repositories and decreases the time involved in locating and matching images of people.

- ItemCollecting Archival Materials During the COVID-19 Pandemic(LYRASIS, 2020-09-01) Klettlinger, Katy L.W.; Grinstead, Leigh A.; orcid: 0000-0003-0442-5332In April 2020, a member institution reached out to LYRASIS for advice on how to safely collect archival materials during the early stages of the pandemic. The archives held half of a substantial collection from a donor who had contracted COVID-19 and was in assisted living. Upon hearing the news, the archives had one month to collect the remaining materials from the executor before they were lost. In discussing the case, LYRASIS consultants hypothesized that other institutions across the country were experiencing similar situations and decided to create a survey to uncover collecting trends and archival practice during the pandemic.
