Survey says . . . THF Digital Library

Every September the Board of Directors and Associates of The Haiku Foundation are sent a survey. Their responses help to guide our growth and direction. We’d like to broaden our input, and so we’ll be asking you to respond to a series of questions, one per week, over the next half-year. Your replies will be weighed in our assessment of our performance.

Today’s question: Digital Library

We currently have a Digital Librarian, Garry Eaton, and a Curator of Digital Acquisitions, Ron Moss. We have added Omeka software for cataloging and user interface. We currently add Book of the Week entries to the Digital Library when available. We hope to substantially increase the number of books we offer in the next few years, including rare, historical, and hard to find books. The Digital Library can be found on the website.

Please assess how well The Haiku Foundation is delivering on this topic. Indicate your assessment of our performance to date by choosing one of the options:

Excellent

Good

Fair

Poor

Abandon

Please feel free to add additional comments. Thank you in advance for your consideration, and for helping us make The Haiku Foundation a better resource.

  1. Excellent, and adding my thanks to Garry Eaton, Ron Moss and all who work on THF Digital Library. As I have said before, it is wonderful how books can be preserved in this way, and yet the qualities of the books can be seen. I especially love seeing handwriting, and how the books were crafted to best present the poems and sometimes photos, illustrations etc. The posts on Mondays by Jim Kacian and the library work well together.
