A Digital North Miami: preserving one city’s historical collections
Martin Kass
Florida International University, United States of America
When a university library, a municipality, a historical society, a regional library network and citizenry collaborated, they were able to preserve one city’s historical collection. Florida International University Libraries led a team that digitized the City of North Miami’s photographs, newspapers, maps and memorabilia and hosted them on its repository.
Voices of Change: Preserving and Presenting Radio Haiti

In 2015, Duke University Libraries received a grant from NEH to support a two year project to digitize and make available online the Radio Haiti Archive. This session will describe the challenges faced by the project team building the digital collection, including handling multilingual metadata and complex item relationships.
