The University Libraries Digital Programs Planning Group shaped and developed policies, decided new directions and initiatives, and helped to prioritize and plan the overall direction of the digital program within the University Libraries. The digital program was concerned with digitizing selected primary source materials of historical interest, and providing online access.

Membership consisted of representatives of Web Services, Cataloging and Metadata Services, special collections, Digital Services, and the UA Libraries Associate Deans. Members enlisted the input of other departments in the UA community as needed.

This group was disbanded in 2012.

The DigiPres Conversations group focused on planning for long-term access, developing policies and procedures to see us through format changes, storage and content management issues. This group included the curators from Hoole Special Collections, Head of Web Services, Associate Dean of Library Technology, Head of Cataloging and Metadata Services, Head of Digital Services, and our Digitization Manager.

This group was also disbanded in 2012.

The Delivery Metadata group worked on issues around metadata development across departments. This group initially included the Head of Cataloging and Metadata, the Metadata Librarians, Head of Digital Services, and Digital Services staff. However, it then expanded to include archivists and archival staff, and topics included anything of interest that may impact the work of those present. This became the "Metadata Forum" convened monthly by the metadata unit.

This group disbanded in 2013.
