PA Digital is made up of staff members from institutions across the state who serve on various teams within the project. The PA Digital Organizational Diagram outlines how the group is structured.

These are the various teams that comprise PA Digital:

  • The Founder’s Group is the group of people who attended the initial meeting to discuss possible ways bring Pennsylvania’s digital collections to the DPLA.
  • The Management Group is a smaller group of individuals who plan and guide the development of PA Digital.
  • The Metadata Team and Rights Subgroup provides leadership and guidance regarding metadata best practices in the PA Digital Community. They focus on assessing and helping enhance metadata for both current and prospective contributing institutions in order to improve discoverability for Pennsylvania institutions’ digital collections.
  • The Aggregator Developers Group works on developing and maintaining the aggregator software that allows us to aggregate PA digital collections to then deliver then to the DPLA. To view our aggregator, click here.
