Our Digital Heritage: Bringing local history to life online (Media Coverage)
Author(s): Meredith Farkas
Date: 5/2/2016
Abstract: Libraries have always played a role in preserving local history, but that job has become more complex as the formats in which materials may be available continue to multiply. On the other hand, the technologies to digitize and post local history resources online have become cheaper and more readily available, even to small libraries.
