Art librarians are crafting solutions for preserving important photographic archives associated with archaeological excavations, thereby ensuring their existence into the future. Although these excavations may have been published in reports, the photographs have remained largely hidden.  Usually known to only a handful of scholars and primarily by word of mouth, these images are now being made visible through the use of new technologies and creative collaborations among and within the sponsoring institutions.  Panelists will present case studies detailing how collaborations among library, technical services, and digital media staffs are constructing compelling digital resources for present and future audiences.
