How can access to collections be improved? Libraries, archives, and similar institutions hold documents and other items for public use. However, many people in the general public dosn’t know just how much they have available to them, or how to access it.
How are library systems promoting the use of their collections and archival data? Libraries and archival institutions are investing in digital resources and are encouraging the public both on and offline to visit. They have digitized collections, provided ebooks, enhanced their online presence through social media and their own websites, provided internet access in their libraries, and renovated to include more collaborative and technology spaces. Besides the libraries and archives themselves, the American Library Association (ALA), the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), and the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) have all been leading the trend.
