Newspaper writes on the importance of digital archiving

The Ten Thousand Year Blog today reports on an article in the Tucson Citizen newspaper on February 25 "on the importance of digital archiving and how digitization programs are enabling access to information for individuals who would otherwise be unable to see it. The downside of this positive spin, however, is that user visits to archives and museums appear to be dropping."

The article states that "nearly two-thirds of the people now using the Wisconsin collections are viewing them online. "
