Be a Digital Survivor: Digitize, Share and Preserve
Are you feeling marooned on your own island? You are not alone. Is your tribe facing challenges, such as time, funding, preservation and storage? Looking to achieve the reward of providing access to and preserving your digital collections? Join these Minnesota digital survivors as they share their quest to digitize, preserve, and showcase their digital objects by using the open source Islandora digital asset management system, customized and supported by PALS. Together these tribes, along with the Islandora community, have formed alliances where they learn from, share with and collaborate to enrich their digital collections. Each tribe will share their journey, experiences, and advice on building digital repositories. Become a Digital Survivor and learn how you too can take the first steps toward building a bridge off your island.
