Multimedia collections bring inherent challenges to any project and institutional repositories are no different. However, these presenters have found that by partnering with content creators and experimenting with a range of media and features, they were able to create attractive and user-friendly multimedia collections in Digital Commons. In this panel, three digital preservation professionals from different colleges in the state of Florida will discuss the challenges, opportunities, and collaborations involved in creating specific multimedia collections within each of their respective Digital Commons repositories. In addition to talking about their individual case studies, these presenters will touch upon valuable media enhancement features such as embedded Youtube videos, Soundcloud audio, and Google maps.
