The Mountain West Digital Library (MWDL) provides a central search portal to over 800,000 digital resources from memory institutions in Utah, Nevada, Idaho, Arizona, and Hawaii. MWDL partners typically work with one of approximately 30 MWDL hosting hubs. Hubs assist partners by providing digital collections training, digitization services, and repository hosting services. Through the hubs model MWDL supports a distributed digital collections network around the Mountain West and works to expand digital library services to additional memory institutions in the region.
In this webinar, Sandra and Rebekah will provide background on the hubs model, explain the different kinds of MWDL hubs, and discuss the need to update the current model of service. Time will be allotted for questions and discussions about the needs of both hubs and partners, and for ideas about how MWDL can modify the hubs model in the future.
