Judy Sackett to Help Lead DPLA Initiative

The University of Kentucky Libraries and the Kentucky Digital Library have been named as a Service Hub for the Digital Public Library of America.  One important aspect of this project will be community engagement.  In collaboration with the Lexington Public Library, UK Libraries will plan several events to capture the stories of the community through digitization of community collections and oral histories.  Additional information regarding the DPLA can be found here:        

 When Judy Sackett returns from sabbatical, she will join Library Technologies to coordinate the community engagement components of this work.  During her UK Libraries career Judy has supervised the statewide Kentucky newspaper microfilming project and was the primary UK Libraries coordinator during the Young Library construction.  Her experience managing large complex projects will be valuable for insuring the success of this essential aspect of the Digital Public Library of America project.
