The Digital Collection Assessment and Use learning module introduces the use of the Digital Public Library of America (dp.la) API to assess descriptive metadata practices from the perspective of subject specialists. Subject experts are encouraged to use this toolkit to consider how their expertise can be used to support access to knowledge.
The learning module is published in the #DLFteach Toolkit: Lesson Plans for Digital Library Instruction. The openly available, peer-reviewed collection of lesson plans and concrete instructional strategies is the result of a project led by the professional development and resource sharing subgroup. This publication emerged from #DLFteach workshops, office hours, Twitter chats, and open meetings. Community members and digital pedagogy practitioners expressed interest in lesson plans and session outlines which they could use as a jumping-off point for their own instruction and adapt for local contexts.
