Plans are currently underway at the Kent State University Library to migrate digital objects onto a different content management system to address the needs of growing collections. The plan will involve shifting to a framework to enhance all current digital collections, as well as anticipating the growth of future projects and formats. The poster will touch in particular on the topic of enhancing search capabilities in this new framework, through use of a single, cross collection searchable index and also discuss the benefits of applying Linked Data concepts. Two current digital collections that will be highlighted and discussed in the poster are the May 4 Digital Archive and the KSU Shootings Oral Histories.
