The Midwest

Community Archiving Workshop – A Regional Training of Trainers: Midwest Region
The midwest region of the IMLS-funded Regional Training of Trainers project focuses its work on the audiovisual needs of Wisconsin-based museums, archives, libraries and cultural centers. For this purpose, the anchor site for the Midwest workshops is Recollection Wisconsin, a consortium administered by WiLS. Recollection Wisconsin works to bring together digital cultural heritage resources from Wisconsin cultural institutions on their website, which feeds into the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA).
