  • Provide direction for existing WPLC projects related to aspects of historical and local collections including the historical newspaper project and development of digitization training and guidelines.
  • Develop projects, supporting budget requests, and collaborative efforts to foster enhanced digital access and preservation services for historical and local collections in an efficient manner.
