The aim of this paper is to clearly show the process, cost, and benefits of an audio digitization project within a university library.
From formulating the idea for a new digital collection available to patrons via the library catalog through implementation, promotion, and gathering feedback, each step is detailed.
Although it is a time‐consuming endeavor, the creation of unique digital library collections can produce a variety of benefits for both library patrons and librarians.
The paper is written by a librarian who is neither a computer nor cataloging expert. It is an attempt to show others who may have important but antiquated collections that digitization projects may be successfully completed without advanced technical skills or a large budget.
