Abstract

Digital collections exist at all types of institutions throughout the Northwest. Wrangling these online resources all into one place is quite a challenge. This poster will raise awareness and highlight digital collections both big and small throughout the region. The range of collections spans from historical documents detailing local histories to the digital repositories of official government business to photographs and to objects documenting Northwest culture (music, art, and environment). Librarians and teachers will learn what collections are freely available to the public, relevant to the reference desk and classroom, and meaningful to patrons and students. Libraries, archives, and special collections can use this poster to assess the state of digital collections in the Northwest, including subject strengths and opportunities for collaboration. Libraries of all types can benefit from adding these digital thoroughbreds to their corral of online library resources.
