Ithaca, NY Any discussion about making a digital collection accessible eventually circles around to the question of “how long?” The Texas Digital Library (TDL) was awarded a $25,000 Historic Preservation and Digitization Award from the NN/LM South Central Region to make 500 photos that illustrate medical history in Dallas available.
