Description

When creativity sparks and the outpouring of ideas begins, information can be lost amongst the initial excitement. Documentation of these sparks can serve as not only a timeline of project development, but also as a knowledge base and roadmap for the future of the project. This lightening talk will focus on the retrospective importance and value of having documented ideas during the development of a new institutional repository at a small private university. Attendees will learn how the documentation was developed, how it was used to create a workshop for the university's liaison librarians, and the important role that consistent and ongoing internal documentation serves in the flow from spark to sharing.
