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. As a program of the Utah Academic Library Consortium for the last twelve years, MWDL brings together 122 partners, including academic libraries, public libraries, archives, museums, historical societies, and government agencies, to share expertise and resources for digitization, hosting, and aggregated search. As one of the first six Service Hubs to the Digital Public Library of America, MWDL provides the on-ramp for DPLA participation to memory institutions in the Mountain West.

Sandra and Rebekah will talk about how MWDL became a Service Hub for the DPLA and what being a Service Hub entails. They will also discuss upcoming MWDL/DPLA announcements and events such as the digitization mini-contracts program and the DPLA Community Representatives program.
