“These collections are comprised of multiple documents that reflect the land use history in the Sedona-Oak Creek area, historical structures and neighborhoods around Flagstaff and local water works planning and conservation efforts in Coconino County,” said William Ascarza, the library’s Collection Manager.  “This project has encompassed over a year of meticulous planning and implementation with the help of dedicated library staff and volunteers. It now serves as an ‘in house’ centerpiece for the library’s future digital collection endeavors.”

The Arizona Memory Project is open to any Arizona institution or private collector interested in making their digital content available online. Contributors receive tools and training that facilitate the digitization process, while patrons benefit from convenient access to your digital content.
