Digital Services represent a major focus of our work at METRO, in large part through the Digital METRO New York project, which has helped fund the creation of over 40 digital collections in the last 5 years. In addition to funding digitization, METRO also provides digital collection hosting, increased access to member collections via the digitalMETRO Directory of digital collections, and research and planning documentation.
Our suite of Digital Services are overseen by the Digital Services Advisory Council, an expert team comprised of METRO members, digitization consultants, and METRO staff. Council members continually help METRO to evaluate and assess emerging and longstanding needs related to digitization. The Council also works with METRO on grant distribution and efforts to develop industry standards and best practice recommendations.
