This session highlights the planning and management of Anatolia College Yearbooks Collection digitization project, which was made possible with a generous grant from the AMICAL Consortium, and great support from the Anatolia College IT department.

The goal of Anatolia College Archives & Special Collections is to collect, preserve, and provide access to the unique historic books and records of Anatolia College. Towards this end, Anatolia College Archives & Special Collections have created a special community in DSpace open source platform in order to preserve and share effectively all the Anatolia College Yearbooks from 1928 till today. The digitization of Anatolia College yearbooks has long been a goal for Archives & Special Collections as they are one of the most used sources of Anatolia College history. The Anatolia College Yearbooks Collection reflects also the economic, social and cultural life of the community of Thessaloniki, as the history of Anatolia College is inextricably linked with the city’s local history. In this presentation, we will focus specifically on the Anatolia College Yearbooks Collection digitization project and the planning and management of this project. Using a SWOT analysis we will identify all the weaknesses and threats during the project but also the strengths and opportunities it makes possible, as well as the promotion of its use, which will bring forward other similar projects.
