Organizational history:
The Sharing Community Images project was begun by the Archives in 2016. The intent of the project was to allow the Archives to engage community members in ensuring that their personal photos could be preserved and made accessible through archives. Hard copy images are scanned at a very high resolution, copies of the files given back to the donors along with the originals. The Archives retains a high resolution copy and places a low resolution copy on the Alaska’s Digital Archives site. Born-digital images are taken in by the Archives in the resolution provided.

Collection description:
This collection consists of the digitized copies of the images provided to the Archives as part of the Sharing Community Images project and the metadata (informational) sheets describing each image.

Arrangement: Image files were assigned photograph numbers based on the order in which they arrived at the Archives.

Digitized copies: All images have been placed online in the Alaska’s Digital Archives. For information about obtaining further digital copies, please contact Archives and Special Collections.
