Sharing New Hampshire with the World
CREATING & ACCESSING DIGITAL COLLECTIONS
October 10, 2018 • Durham Public Library, 49 Madbury Road, Durham, NH
Fall '18 workshop.
With the ability to easily create digital images of archival materials, now the challenge shifts from the mechanics of digitization to strategies for sharing that content with the wider world of patrons and researchers. One such initiative is the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA).
Speakers on DPLA in New Hampshire include Sarah Galligan (NH Historical Society), Michael York (NH State Library), and Alice Pearman (Plymouth State University). Panelists sharing experiences with other solutions include Brantey Palmer (Colby-Sawyer Archives / Preservica), Zach Giroux (Keene State Archives / Omeka), and Dan Peters (Manchester Historic Association / PastPerfect). After lunch Sarah Galligan will speak about the New Hampshire History Network initiative and Bill Ross (University of New Hampshire) will give a presentation on the use of crowdsourcing for transcription, markup, and metadata.
