Archives in the Modern World- Going Digital

I recently attended a training session with CDLC, to learn how to use CONTENTdm, software that enables the management and uploading of digital archives to the internet. Previously, the Grems-Doolittle library, in partnership with the Schenectady Museum, had added some images and documents related to Charles Steinmetz to the CDLC digital collection. Now we are being encouraged to add still more digital records to CDLC’s growing database of images. 
There is some debate as to what collections we shall select to upload, and to what extent we are going to share our collections online, but we will definitely post something in the near future. Keep an eye out for our digital collections at CDLC’s website, and while we are in the process of uploading images, have a look at the Steinmetz collection.
