A report and eight cases studies by Nancy L. Maron, Sarah Pickle, and Deanna Marcum. Published November 2013 by ARL and Ithaka S+R. Funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
The report aims to address one of the biggest challenges facing libraries and cultural heritage organizations: how to move their special collections into the 21st century through digitization while developing successful strategies to make sure those collections remain accessible and relevant over time.
