Presentation: Centers for Disease Control’s Public Access and Digital Repository Project
To better serve the information needs associated with public health the CDC has developed the CDC repository system known as CDC Stacks. Since information needs are so varied in public heath the documents housed in the repository must be equally broad. Digital collections were brought in from across the CDC so that they can be searched and discovered from one user interface. This webinar will focus on the development of the repository platform, working with groups at CDC to identify collections, and future plans for the repository.
