UALC’s Mountain West Digital Library Introduced to Utah Educators

October 5, 2009 -- SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Mountain West Digital Library (MWDL) was introduced to Utah teachers at the Utah Education Association (UEA) conference at the South Towne Expo Center in Sandy, Utah on October 1-2, 2009. Members of the Utah Academic Library Consortium’s (UALC) Digitization Committee exhibited the compilations of digital collections from universities, colleges, public libraries, museums, and historical societies in Utah, Nevada, and Idaho to hundreds of interested educators. This was MWDL's first year at UEA. “The response was amazing,” said Kim Rollins, UALC Public Affairs Coordinator. “Most of the people we talked to couldn’t believe such a valuable resource was free to the their students and to the public.”
