e-Archives is Purdue University Libraries digital library for archives and special collections, including manuscript collections, photographs, and University publications. The e-Archives digital library went live in 2006, as a result of the work of the Digital Initiatives Team in the Libraries Archives and Special Collections. The team, comprised of a Digital Initiatives Librarian, a Metadata Specialist, and an Archivist, evaluated existing digital asset management systems and chose to purchase and implement CONTENTdm, the software that runs e-Archives. Based on existing standards and best practices, the team also wrote selection criteria for digitization and workflows for digital imaging and metadata creation.
