Culture in Transit (CIT) Interest Form
Culture in Transit will be sending a Mobile Digitization Specialist to METRO member institutions in New York City and Westchester County to provide on-site digitization services.

Please note: all materials digitized as part of CIT will be made available online to the public through METRO's Digital Culture of Metropolitan New York (DCMNY) site and will also shared with the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA). Materials should either be in the public domain, or the institution must have the right to make the content available online.
