Two of our Alliance Digital Repository sites, Digital UW and Digital UNC, will be offline this weekend due to maintenance at the data center at University of Wyoming. The downtime will last from 3:00 PM on Friday 3/13 until 9 AM on Monday 3/16.

Thanks to all the presenters and participants who made it through the cold & snow for the "Sharing Colorado's Unique Digital Collections" conference on November 13! The conference generated many thought-provoking discussions about DPLA and a statewide digital cultural heritage portal for Colorado.
