SESSION 508 - Virtual Libraries and Digital Preservation in Alabama: The Role of Archives and Special Collections

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Virtual libraries are consolidated indexes of digital items harvested from different repositories. Started by a handful of institutions in 2001, AlabamaMosaic now contains almost 80,000 items from more than 20 institutions. Four archivists and one librarian discuss the challenges of building and maintaining a virtual library in a relatively poor state; how AlabamaMosaic has raised the profile of their collections; and how AlabamaMosaic led to creation of another statewide resource, the Alabama Digital Preservation Network (ADPNet).
