Using the Internet Archive and Theological Commons As An On-Ramp to Digitization and Access for Local Collections

Does your library have unique public-domain or copyright-cleared materials you would like to see digitized and accessible online? By outsourcing the digitization to the Internet Archive, your library’s content can be discoverable and accessible not only through the Internet Archive’s site (archive.org) but also through the Theological Commons (commons.ptsem.edu), a free online digital library developed and hosted by Princeton Seminary that provides searching and display for materials on theology and religion from over 150 research libraries. This session will lay out the procedures, costs, and benefits associated with digitization through the Internet Archive, as well as how your content can be incorporated into the Theological Commons through no additional effort on your part. Digital collections that have already been created using this model will be demonstrated and described, with time for questions and discussion.
