Virtual Community Museum

A grant received by the Libraries and several partners on the Olympic
Peninsula enables us to accumulate a 'Virtual Community Museum' of
digitizal or digitized cultural artifacts. Over a two year period, about
12,000 digital objects from Native American tribes, museums, libraries,
and personal collections will be assembled and published on the web via
CONTENTdm.  During the Quileute tribe's Elder's Week celebration, staff
from the Libraries will assist in gathering audio recordings of Quileute
stories and myths as told by tribal members, concurrent with the process
of scanning images, photographing artifacts, and shooting digital video
recordings.
