This webinar will feature guest speakers from two cultural heritage initiatives in the West, the Arizona Memory Project and the Montana Memory Project. Both initiatives provide access to digital collections relating to their respective state's cultural heritage and government documents. AMP joined MWDL in 2013 and their 60 collections are currently available through our portal. Montana Memory Project joined MWDL in late 2013 and their first five pilot collections of MMP resources are being ingested as of February 2014.
Richard Prouty and Jennifer Birnel will talk about how their Memory Projects were formed, the infrastructure of their projects, and how they work with the partners in their region.
