Session 2C | Building a sustainable digital community archive in rural Colorado
Collaboration and community engagement are critical to sustaining community archives and building their digital presence. This presentation describes a collaborative project aimed at digitizing materials from the Park County Local History Archive and supporting the Archive’s sustainability efforts. The Archive was organized by volunteers and is located in the rural area of Colorado. The Digital Archive was built in partnership with the University of Denver Library and Information Science program and the Park County local government. The presenters will focus on the processes of working with a remote community archive, building community relationships, and constructing the Digital Archive in Omeka.
