Two Paths to Your Library, Archive or Historical Society's Own Digital Project

NJDH are now looking to form partnerships with libraries, archives or historical societies around New Jersey. Here are two ways to get involved:

E-ZStart Logo

Join the statewide portal to history and cultural heritage materials quickly, easily, and at no cost. New Jersey Digital Highway's E-ZStart path makes creating a digital project E-Z. To find out how to develop your own collection through NJDH, and read more about the benefits, take a look at our Introduction to E-ZStart.

For organizations that wish to develop a larger collection through NJDH and become a full partner, this website provides step by step guidelines for developing your digital collection.

You can work your way through the process in order, or dip into topics of interest, using the "Digital Collections: Roadmap" section of the menu to the left of the screen.

If you have any questions or comments about forming a partnership with NJDH, please feel free to contact us - we would be delighted to hear from you.

Many NJDH partners are particularly interested in developing collections of photographic images in NJDH. Workflow Management System User Guide for Organizations: Working with Photographs is an excellent starting point for understanding the full range of possibilities for developing metadata for images using our Workflow Management System. Information on additional digital formats (e.g. Born Digital Documents, Video Objects) is available at: NJDH Digital Imaging Specifications.
