Welcome aboard, Montana!

The Mountain West Digital Library is growing like crazy, and we are so happy to announce the addition of a brand new state. Montana has become the sixth state to be represented in MWDL along with Utah, Nevada, Arizona, Idaho, and Hawaii.

Thanks to the diligent efforts of our Metadata Librarian, Anna Neatrour, we have ingested 40 collections from over 15 different partners via the Montana Memory Project.

Another huge thank you to Jennifer Birnel at the Montana Memory Project for opening up MMP’s wonderful collections to MWDL! Our staff is thrilled to make these historic collections more visible on a regional and national level.

I’ve only just started looking at the collections and have already discovered these wonderful items:

Come explore MMP’s wonderful new collections in the Mountain West Digital Library and learn more about the history of “Big Sky Country”.
The addition of Montana to the Mountain West Digital Library also means that our collections now cover a major swath of the Western United States from Canada to Mexico. Our updated partners map shows MWDL’s geographic coverage with the addition of the Montana Memory Project’s collections.


Welcome aboard, Montana!
