dc.description.abstractAs the Chinese American Librarians Association (CALA)’s Institutional Repository, CALASYS hosts scholarly works and educational materials from its members and library professionals in the Library and Information Science field, and it also archives CALA’s official documents, conference materials, and Chinese cultural heritage collections. Currently, over 600 items have been added to CALASYS’ open and private collections. In celebration of the CALA’s 50th Anniversary, the CALA 50th Celebration Taskforce and the CALASYS Committee created a collection grant which aimed to preserve the history of CALA, Chinese American librarians, and the Chinese American community, encourage CALA members’ participation in CALASYS and enrich its collections. Three proposed collections have been awarded or recognized including CALA: A Path to the Future Library Leaders, CALA/YALSA Chinese American Reading List and Ming Qing Women's Poetry Collection. Open trainings have been designed and delivered to the grant participants and efforts have been made to collect data and build data models for deposit of these collections. This presentation will address the Omeka-based CALASYS system, its scope and collection policy, content and collections especially the awarded collections, the self-contribution and mediated contribution workflows and share some metadata and record examples. By opening CALASYS to all, the CALA President and officers hope that each contributing individual, committee, and chapter will be able to deposit works and documents and become the manager of their own collections after going through additional training. CALASYS will thus continue to grow at a faster pace and in a more inclusive direction in promoting diverse scholarships and research as well as association history.en_US
