The Arizona Memory Project Webinar
Original Broadcast Date:  March 18, 2013

The Arizona Memory Project was begun in 2006 as a platform for the Arizona State Library's substantial digital holdings (legal documents and photographs). Shortly after its launch, it was offered as a platform to other libraries, non-profits, historical societies, schools, et al, that didn't have the resources to launch digital online exhibits. As the project grew and as the state neared its Centennial, the Arizona Memory Project became recognized not only a valuable resource for smaller organizations, but also as an established and valued platform for any organization wanting to join a consortium for sharing Arizona-related history and culture. 

The Arizona Memory Project continues to grow and currently has over 125 digital exhibits made up of over 80,000 digital objects - photos, documents, maps, audio and video. 

This presentation will describe the early stages of the project, its growth and some plans for the future.
