Abstract

University historic costume and textile (HCT) collections are facing pressure to offer digital collections online. As more universities begin to push for open access content, libraries, special collections, and HCT collections are increasingly focused on providing online access to materials. Museums were resistant to new website technology due to their philosophy that real artifacts hold higher esteem than virtual objects; however, museums and other collections are finding that meaningful websites have become essential to fulfilling their educational mission (Saiki, 2010). This proposed research seeks to better understand the attitudes, behaviors, and use of university digital collections and among college students.
