Big Sky Digital Network: Montana State University, the University of Montana, the Montana State Library, and the Montana Historical Society partnered to form the Big Sky Country Digital Network, an online hub of digitized library and museum collections. Collections of some of Montana’s most unique historical books, photographs, letters and more will now be widely available online. In addition to providing a way to search multiple collections of historical items from across the state, the network indexes information about those collections and submits it to the Digital Public Library of America, a nonprofit group that aggregates digital collections from America’s libraries, archives, museums and cultural heritage institutions.
