Notes

Abstract: The University of North Texas Libraries' Digital Libraries Department runs a robust institutional repository made of three parts: The Portal to Texas History, The UNT Digital Library, and The Gateway to Oklahoma History. We have for the last seven years run a mini-grant program to digitize materials from institutions all over Texas called Rescuing Texas History (RTH). This grant program asks partner institutions and private collection holding individuals to write and submit grant proposals for their special materials to be digitized and uploaded into The Portal to Texas History. In return, the partners increase access to their materials as well as archival digital copies of the items for their own use. This mutually beneficial arrangement has allowed for many at-risk, historical items to be accessed by students, teachers, researchers, and life-long learners state-wide and nationally. Learning outcomes from this session include knowledge of logistics management of several digitization projects and how to work with partner institutions to create an open educational resources that is utilized in schools and by researchers all over Texas and beyond.
