A digital library project on a shoestring

Supported by a modest grant and collaboration with local historical societies, the California State University, Northridge, University Library assembled and created a digital archive of 2400 images of photographs, manuscripts, maps, postcards and brochures chronicling the history of the San Fernando Valley, a suburb of Los Angeles. In the process the Library learned valuable lessons about administering a digital library project and its metadata.
