Minnesota Digital Library

City Park, Hibbing, MN

 The Minnesota Digital Library is a large and vast website full of digitized photos of lakes and a great deal more. On their site, visitors can learn about projects which include the fascinating "Minnesota Reflections," a trove of over 135,000 photos and maps. As it is a large collection, the site also provides a few helpful user guides. In the section For Educators, interested parties can make their way through lesson plans and curriculum guides. Topics here cover a variety of Minnesota-specific lessons, including "Mining in Minnesota" and "The Civilian Conservation Corps in Minnesota." Additionally, for library professionals interested in learning from the success of this project, the Digitizing & Metadata section provides great reports just for this purpose. from the Scout Report
