Notes

Abstract: The Kean University Library has created or will soon create three digital collections focused on New Jersey. The New Jersey Public Policy Collection contains documents on New Jersey public policy issues created by non-profit organizations. The Kean University New Jersey History Project using tools provided by the HathiTrust Digital Library to create a keyword searchable collection within the HathiTrust Digital Library of the full text of documents on the history of the state of New Jersey. The soon-to-be-created Union County History Collection will contain finding aids and digitized primary materials available in Union County, New Jersey public Libraries to facilitate the study of Union County History. All of these collections take advantage of resources readily available to libraries in other states and can be duplicated in those other states. This presentation will discuss the issues involved in creating those collections, the way in which support was gained to obtain resources to put into those collections, and the manner in which those collections have been publicized. At the end of the presentation, attendees should be able to take the lessons the Kean University Library learned to create equivalent collections in their own states.
