Abstract
Four UMaine museums and archives discussed projects that serve as case studies for promoting collections and casemaking at other institutions. Topics included the Hudson Museum's loan of a Northwest Coast mask -- the one that inspired the Seahawks logo -- to the University of Washington; the campaign to save the campus barn which is now home to the Page Farm and Home Museum; the digitization of the holdings of the Maine Folklife Center for the Library of Congress; and the digitization of holdings in Special Collections celebrating UMaine's 150th.
