The survey will take no more than 10 to 15 minutes to complete.

The purpose of this study is to explore the ways in which digital collections are providing the opportunity to create access to local public history collections through partnerships among libraries, museums, historical societies, and community members. Another objective of this study is to gather input from digital collections professionals about community building and information literacy instruction as part of digital collection creation.
