The Long Trail Collection, created by the University of Vermont Center for Digital Initiatives (CDI), is a collection of over 900 digitized lantern slides that document the creation of the nation’s oldest long-distance hiking trail. The presentation detailed the effort to create a mobile iPhone interface for the collection, allowing Long Trail hikers the ability to “take the collection with them” as they hiked. Challenges to creating a mobile presence as well as implications for other digital collections were also discussed.
