North Carolina ECHO, Exploring Cultural Heritage Online (NC ECHO), http://www.ncecho.org, is a multi-faceted collaborative statewide initiative that maintains an online portal to the special collections of North Carolina's libraries, archives, museums, historic sites, and related organizations. Supported with federal Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) funds made possible through a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) administered by the State Library of North Carolina, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources, this project seeks to build a statewide framework for digitization in order to facilitate comprehensive access to the holdings of North Carolina's cultural institutions.
NC ECHO is presently in our fifth year of operations, and we are nearing the end of the first phase of our project-the completion of a needs assessment and opinion survey of all cultural institutions in the state of North Carolina. We are seeking input from and about other like projects so that we may make informed decisions as we plan for the future of the project.
If you work on a statewide or regional digitization project, it would help us a great deal if you would take just a few minutes to complete a short survey. Once compiled, all data gathered will be shared via the Digistates list.
