Excitement abounds! We recieved word from the State Historical Society of North Dakota that the BSC Library Archives is one of ten institutions to receive a statewide digitization grant. Carolyn Twingley, Serials/ILL/Archives Librarian, wrote the grant application and will coordinate BSC’s part of the project.
The plan is to scan 100 images (e.g., photographs, letters, pamphlets, and other documents) from each institution, enter descriptive data, and upload the records to the Digital Horizons site. Work will begin in May and the project should be wrapped up sometime in August 2009.
Currently, images from the NDSU Institute for Regional Studies & University Archives, the State Historical Society of North Dakota, Prairie Public Broadcasting, and Concordia College Archives are available on the Digital Horizons site.
The institutions whose resources will be added during the current project include: Barnes County Historical Society, Billings County Historical Society, Bismarck State College Library Archives, Cass County Historical Society, Manfred Heritage Museum, McLean County Historical Society, Mercer County Historical Society, Pembina County Historical Society, Stutsman County Memorial Museum, and Three Affiliated Tribes Museum.
