abstract
This project relates the progress on an international, scholarly, digital project sponsored by the University of Wyoming (UW) and Saratov State University (SSU) in Saratov, Russia. The University Libraries of UW and Saratov State University have participated in faculty exchanges and have shared information from each library’s respective collections with one another. One of the more interesting information exchanges has a joint project involving a self-paced CD-ROM featuring the history and music from the Old Believer Schism that rocked the Russian Orthodox Church in the middle part of the 17th century. The Library at Saratov State University had produced the educational exhibit based on materials and content from their Special Collections. They shared the collection on a CD-ROM disk with UW. The UW Libraries worked to expand the reach of the collection by taking the content from the disk, reformatting the presentation and mounting the presentation on OMEKA, an open-source piece of software that features a robust search and display interface. Content screens are being translated from Russian into English. The goal of the project is to present a bi-lingual digital presentation on an important event that took place in Russian History, discuss the challenges of translating content and meaning, focus and expose the unique liturgical Old Belief collections from SSU to a wider worldwide audience and to share an open-source digital application with Saratov State University so more bi-lingual, trans-Atlantic projects featuring digital work can be shared and exposed to wider international audiences.
