***THIS IS NOT PART OF THE SAILS DIGITAL HISTORY COLLECTION***
This is an example of the kind of exhibit we could create without needing to first "process" or "host" the items. The idea here is that it is possible to curate and highlight parts of the collections owned by the libraries that are hosted with the Digital Commonwealth without necessarily needing to be the entity responsible for the whole collection. The items used are part of the Boston Public Library's collection.
This is not an endorsement of this course of action, just a demonstration of what it would look like.

The Plainville Public Library, the Plainville Historical Commission, and the SAILS Library Network have collaborated to create a collection of photographs of Plainville and its residents for the SAILS Digital History Collection. The Library and the Historical Society have held scanning parties at the library. Plainville residents who wanted to share their family history brought photographs to the library for scanning. The scanned images were transmitted to the SAILS Library Network where detailed descriptions were added. The images and descriptions then uploaded into the SAILS Digital History Collection. These images are now available on that website as well as on the Massachusetts Digital Commonwealth and the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) websites.
