Effective collaboration between archives and technical services increases the discoverability of special collection materials. Archivists at the University of Dayton had been using Archive-It to collect websites for a few years, but the information was isolated in a separate platform and wasn’t effectively marketed to users. Working together, the team of archivists and technical services librarians incorporated the website collections into the discovery layer. Metadata was added at the seed level and indexed on a single, user-friendly platform, with statistics gathered after promotion.
