AbstractTwo challenges faced by the curator of a small collection are 1) incorporating digitization into the collection as standard practice and 2) getting digitized data exposed to the community. For any number of reasons, these may be appear to be daunting tasks –ones that may be more often avoided than confronted. In a question answer format, we will explore common questions we heard during a recent CollectionsWeb, SCNet, Central Michigan University, and iDigBio-sponsored small collections workshop and provide a variety of answers that may help put these collections on the “digital map.”
