Collaborative Digitization Programs in the United States
Originally established as the Colorado Digitization Project in 1999, the CDP later evolved into the Collaborative Digitization Program, earning national recognition for its collaborative digitization expertise. The CDP merged into BCR in April 2007, creating BCR’s CDP. In 2010 BCR established a partnership with LYRASIS which hosts and has added new resources for practitioners working in the areas of digitization and preservation. The best practices and digital toolbox materials came from the Collaborative Digitization Program’s website. Includes links to other ongoing collaborative digitization projects focused on cultural heritage materials, articles, and documents about specific projects.
