The Digital Archives of Colorado College is part of a collaborative initiative with the Colorado Alliance of Research Libraries. Member libraries contribute their individual content to the Alliance Digital Repository, who provides technical expertise for the ongoing development of the project on behalf of all participating libraries.
Each institution has its own portal and retains its own identity. This partnership allows for the shared purchase of software, storage space, programmers, and robust backup mechanisms. Without this collaborative relationship, costs to develop and maintain this important initiative would be prohibitive.
