In Connecticut, a Small Model of Collaboration

LibraryJournal.com By Michael Kelley,  Nov 19, 2010

Excerpt: “A collaboration in Connecticut is providing a relatively inexpensive model for libraries that want to expand awareness of their collections and demonstrate their value to a wider public.

The project—Treasures of Connecticut Libraries—allows libraries to digitize, for free, up to 100 items in their collection, and then to upload their collection to a CONTENTdm site managed by the state library in Hartford.

“The collaborative aspect has made this project more interesting than we originally thought,” Gail Hurley, the statewide library catalog coordinator at the Connecticut State Library in Hartford, told LJ.”
