This presentation was one of four during a Mid-Atlantic Regional Archives Conference presentation on April 15, 2016. Digitization of collections can help to improve internal workflows, make materials more accessible, and create new and engaging relationships with users. Laurie Gemmill Arp will discuss the LYRASIS Digitization Collaborative, created to assist institutions with their digitization needs, and how it has worked to help institutions increase connections with users. Robin Pike from the University of Maryland will discuss how they factor requests for access into selection for digitization and how they track the use of digitized materials. Laura Drake Davis of James Madison University will discuss the establishment of a formal digitization program, its impact on users, and the resulting increased use of their collections. Linda Tompkins-Baldwin will discuss Digital Maryland’s partnership with the Digital Public Library of America to provide access to archives held by institutions without a digitization program.
