Summary
Local history collections are only as good as how well they represent their community, so make sure the community is easily able to contribute to your collection. This LIBchat will discuss an implemented tool and workflow for collecting both digital and analog photographs for accession into local history collections. You will learn about submission agreements, workflows for ingest, tools to facilitate the transfer, metadata considerations, and marketing strategies to actually get your community excited and involved to contribute to the preservation of their local history.
