  2. Why Collaborate? • Share costs of equipment, personnel, maintenance • Smaller institutions can “get into the game” • Better chance of grant funding • Reunite dispersed collections virtually

  3. Types of Collaboration • Joint Project • Two institutions both contribute materials and participate in digitization process • Digital Consortium • Institutions of various types and sizes contribute equipment, expertise, labor, and materials according to their ability to do so

  4. What is <OKDIGITAL>? • In the Autumn of 2001, a group of academic librarians in Oklahoma began to explore the possibility of doing a joint digital project • Out of these discussions came the idea for OKDIGITAL, a statewide digitization consortium based on the model of the Colorado Digitization Project

The Oklahoma Digital Statewide Feasibility Study of Available Resources • Funded by a Fellowship from Amigos Library Services • Provided funds for a statewide survey and regional meetings • 285 surveys were sent to libraries, museums, tribal organizations and historical societies; 65 were returned

  6. Types of Institutions • 30% Museums • 26% Public Libraries • 19% Academic Libraries • 11% Other (medical & institutional libraries) • 10% Historical Societies • 3% Tribal Organizations • 1% Genealogical Societies

  7. Interest in Digitization • 85% Interested in digitization. • 23% Currently involved in a digitization project. • 75% Interested in a collaborative digitization project.

  8. Current Status of Project • Core group of participants has emerged from the regional meetings • Seeking grant funding for a pilot project • Working out written agreements on contributions of all participants and selection of materials • Established as a Discussion Group in the Oklahoma Library Association
