In September 2010, the National Library of Medicine (NLM) launched Digital Collections [1], a Fedora Commons-based repository which allows rich access to and the preservation of digital content important to the long-term stewardship of NLM collections. Included in this initial launch were 11 digitized motion pictures from NLM's History of Medicine Division (HMD). NLM's Digital Collections repository has evolved and grown, and now contains over 200 motion picture titles. This article examines the content modeling, selection, workflows, and software used to produce repository content, and presents our recent movement to digitization of motion picture content as a true preservation solution.
