North Carolina digital collections collaboratory blog

A blog to add to your rss feeds is the North Caroline digital collections collaboratory blog.

The writers of this blog say that This blog was created for Digital Librarians in North Carolina to share experiences, exchange ideas, and develop collaborations. It was created by two such librarians after starting some “information-sharing” visits between our two institutions, and further meeting a few other NC-based folks at the recent LITA National Forum. We realized that many of us face the same challenges related to workflow, platforms, and institutional support, and it would be great if we could all benefit from potential solutions and approaches to issues.

There are some really interesting ideas being raised on this blog. Have a look at it and see what you think.
