The following has been posted on behalf of Jodi Allison-Bunnell of Orbis Cascade Alliance.
Four organizations–the Orbis Cascade Alliance, the Oregon State Library’s LSTA program, the Washington State Library’s Rural Heritage Program, and the Oregon Heritage Commission–are collaborating to support digital collections at cultural heritage organizations in Oregon and Washington. Our work together began in 2015 with the Northwest Digital Summit, which brought together cultural heritage organizations in Washington and Oregon to discuss the types of support most needed. Based on the report from that summit, we worked together successfully in 2016-2017 to develop standards, documentation, and training. We’re honored to have received LSTA funding for 2017-2018 as well.
