At the National Council on Public History’s Annual Conference, Nancy Maron will present on “From Antiquarians to Deadheads. Lessons from “Searching for Sustainability: Strategies from Eight Digitized Special Collections.” When moving collections online, most institutions learn quickly that digitization is the easy part. As grant funding rarely covers ongoing operations, the larger challenge is to ensure that digitized collections remain accessible and relevant over time. In this interactive conversation with leaders from some of the institutions profiled in “Searching for Sustainability,” we will explore the strategies they have employed to build the audience, infrastructure, and funding models necessary to maintain and grow their digital collections.

When: March 22, 10:30 am-noon
