Please welcome us in congratulating Georgia State University Library on their newest online resource, the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) Collection.
This collection is comprised of more than 300 maps and other documents that date back to MARTA’s beginning in the mid-1960s, and depict the planning decisions that the organization made during the 1960s and early 1970s. There are examples of both projects that came to fruition, and those that did not.
More information about the collection is available at WABE’s blog, which includes an audio version of the story.
Digital Public Library of America, Stanford University, and DuraSpace are partnering on the IMLS-funded “Hydra in a Box” project to develop a “feature-rich, robust, flexible digital repository that is easy to install, configure, and maintain” based on the Hydra project codebase. They’re seeking input from those who manage digtial collections and those who are interested in digital repositories.
