This program will highlight achievements of three special libraries that have digitized important collections and made them available online. The collections to be discussed include the the Great Basin National Heritage Area Archive, Neuro-Ophthalmology Virtual Education Library, and Utah Territorial Papers Collection. Presenters will describe how collections were selected, the resources and workflows required to digitize them, and user reactions to having the materials web accessible. Practical advice on how to launch a digitizing project will be a unifying theme of the session. Sandra McIntyre of the Mountain West Digital Library will conduct the session and describe how libraries can benefit from participating in the MWDL and the newly launched Digital Public Library of America.
