We strive to increase access to collections and connect with audiences. Digitization of collections can help improve workflows, make materials more accessible and create engaging relationships with users. The LYRASIS Digitization Collaborative was designed to assist with digitization needs. The program enables institutions to gain the benefits of a coordinated effort without having to invest in their own infrastructure. A range of materials have been digitized including books, newspapers, archival materials, manuscripts, photographs, maps, microfilm, audio/video & film. Andrea Fowlerwill discuss how Trevecca Nazarene University increased access to its collections. DebbieLee Landi will discuss recent forays of University of the South into audio and video digitization including initial planning, getting partners involved, and considerations with oral history focusing on interviews of those who lived through World War II.
