Accessing Anthropology: Digital Collections at the National Anthropological Archives
  DOI :  10.2352/issn.2168-3204.2010.7.1.art00005  Published OnlineJanuary 2010

Since the start of the National Anthropological Archives digital imaging program in 1999, the archive has produced over 100,000 digital assets from archival material to include sound recordings. Several of the projects have promoted outreach and access to the collections through avenues of collaboration. Working with both source communities and researchers, our collections are continually reaching new audiences and are being used in creative ways. In a web 2.0 and social networking world, the NAA is looking ahead towards new ways to promote access. This paper highlights considerations, challenges and successes in achieving these projects.
