Wayback Wednesday: Blog posts on digital libraries worth remembering from the Digitization 101 archives

Seattle Public LibraryThis week, I want to highlight a series of Digitization 101 blog posts that tried to define the term "digital library":
Those blog posts were a precursor to a graduate class that I taught in 2009 in which the students had to create their own definition as well as compile information on digital libraries.  Their work became a public wiki housed at Syracuse University's School of Information Studies.

I'd also like to mention a blog post entitled Digital "librarians" from this past winter. The post was inspired by students who were interested in being a digital librarian, but who weren't sure if people really did that type of work!  Please be sure to read the comments which include information on more people who are digital librarians.

Want to dig into the archives yourself?  Use the "popular labels" on the right side of the blog OR use your favorite Internet search engine to search this site (e.g, plus whatever terms are relevant to you).
