Digital Collections at Your Library: Community, Culture, and Connection
Tuesday, April 26 @ 12:00 pm
Digital collections at your library can preserve local histories and artifacts at risk of being lost. They offer an opportunity to represent the diversity of stories and voices in your community likely missing from your physical collection. But they are resource-intensive, requiring new skills, technology, and an ongoing commitment to maintain them.
Understanding the full lifecycle of digital stewardship is critical to successfully providing digital collections. In this webinar, practitioners will share how their digital collections have enabled their community members to connect with unique histories and cultures, increase appreciation of local history, and foster connections across generations. You’ll also learn about a new series of free courses developed for small public libraries and tribal archives, libraries, museums.
