Last Tuesday, MWDL hosted the first in a nine-part Winter Webinar Series, and it's safe to say that we are off to a strong start! Twenty-one people logged in to hear about "Partnering with the Mountain West Digital Library." We had participants from the East Coast curious to hear if there are comparable collaborations in their region (there are!) as well as local digital libraries looking to either start digitization projects or open up their collections to MWDL. Both of our new Memory Project partners, Richard Prouty and Jennifer Birnel, were there to hear about what is going on with MWDL as well as longtime MWDL supporters like Cheryl Walters, Catherine McIntyre, and Kristen Jensen. Thanks to everyone for the support!
Sandra and I are looking forward to the next topic in the Winter Webinar Series, "MWDL as a Service Hub for the Digital Public Library of America: Updates and Plans." We hope to see many of you there with questions about our new national digital library.
