Mobile Community Archives
LYRASIS; University of Nebraska at Omaha
$5,550 to the University of Nebraska at Omaha towards a pilot project that would allow them to work with tribal colleges and communities in Nebraska. In recent years, archivists have identified the need and desire to capture community archives. The project explored a mobile maker space and digitization lab that would allow them to reach out to rural communities and digitize their material, making such material widely available while keeping the archive in the community.
