Description: The goal of My Upload was to make it easy for library users to contribute to digital collections through an online, open-source upload tool that corresponds to a metadata template for simple ingestion into any digital collection database. Columbus Metropolitan Library documented the process in a white paper, and released the software under an open-source license, and published it on GitHub.
