Notes

Abstract: Communities across Texas are at risk of losing their unique identities due to a variety of factors, including urban sprawl, out-migration, deaths of those people with community memory. To address this, UNT Libraries collaborates with partners through extensive outreach to digitize and preserve their materials on The Portal to Texas History, a digital library designed for preserving and building access to digital surrogates of physical materials. With over 36 types of materials available, including photographs, ledgers, court records, maps, yearbooks, news videos and scripts, and newspapers, the Portal not only serves as a digital preservation infrastructure but also as a community identity preservation vehicle.
