Collaboration between the Latah County Historical Society and the University of Idaho Library to conduct the digitization of materials related to the history of Moscow, Idaho (home to the University of Idaho), and public programming on digital history sources and community archives. The project would center on a digitization day and a public launch event including lectures on local history, as well as two exhibits that would be displayed at both partner institutions. A digital collection of scanned cultural materials would be preserved by the university and made publicly accessible.

The University of Idaho Library (UI Library) and Latah County Historical Society (LCHS) will host a day-long Common Heritage Event and additional public lectures on digital scholarship and community archives in Moscow, Idaho. The event will enable community members to work with the UI Library's experienced staff to digitize and create metadata for their cultural heritage materials. These materials will eventually become the Latah County Common Heritage Digital Collection, which will be made available online through the UI Library's website. Afterwards, we will host a digital collection launch party that will feature local experts on themes that emerged from the materials and the importance of community-generated archives. Two physical exhibits will also be created to feature materials from the collection. Together, these events will benefit future study of Idaho history by collecting historical materials that document underrepresented eras in both the UI Library and LCHS collections.
