Abstract: Murray and Belden conducted research that explored the impact and value of digitized resources for users of The Portal to Texas History, a collaborative digital library. The range of primary-source materials includes maps, books, manuscripts, newspapers, diaries, photographs, and letters from the unique collections of 250 partners at Texas libraries, museums, archives, historical societies, genealogical societies, and private families. A common framework of impact value areas included: economic, social, educational, cultural, political, environmental, organizational, and operational. Using a common framework made it possible to conceptually organize findings from several data sources, including a survey, citation analysis, usage statistics, and user-submitted comments. The study discovered interesting results from the demographics of Portal users, and challenged assumptions we had about who these users would be.
