Digital Collection Steering Committee


The Collections Steering Committee (CSC) is a cross-library group which collaborates to 1) identify strategies for Emory Libraries collections, including aligning collections to meet current and anticipated faculty, student and healthcare needs, and 2) develop best practices for the purchase and license of collections in all formats, and 3) set priorities for overall collection assessment, and 4) initiate, explore and document cross-library collection partnerships, including efforts for diversity and inclusion in building collections and new models of scholarly communication, and 5) set collection policies and priorities, as needed, for digitization of collections for inclusion in the Emory repository, Cor.  The CSC will coordinate with appropriate units and committees (such as Metadata Working Group) to ensure that proper attention is given to descriptive metadata, dissemination, and preservation of digital content. 

The Collections Steering Committee also promotes dialogue about relevant collection development topics among library staff.  The CSC may also charge task forces to carry out collection development-related projects.   

The Collections Steering Committee is the successor to the Digital Collections Steering Committee, which was charged with the development of a robust and sustainable strategy for building and stewarding a robust digital collection for Emory University Libraries in accordance with developed acquisition, preservation, dissemination, and access/use policies.




The group’s membership is comprised of staff with expertise and leadership in areas of collection management, digitization, digital content management, scholarly communication, and archives and special collections.
