Project Background

King County Snapshots grew out of Crossing Organizational Boundaries, a two-year project funded by a 2001 National Leadership Grant for Library and Museum Collaboration from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). Read the grant application abstract, narrative and final report for further information about the project.

This partnership between a major regional history museum, a major state university library, and ten smaller historical organizations belonging to the Association of King County Historical Organizations has resulted in the scanning and cataloging of the 12,000 images featured on this Web presentation.

In addition, project partners participated in three workshops, including training on image selection; an introduction to metadata using the CONTENTdm software suite; and advice about selling images and web design.

For further information about these topics, see the extensive list of resources. If you have specific questions about this project, contact the project administrators.
