This article discusses the collaborative digitization effort between librarians at Marian College (now Marian University) and Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) to create a deliverable online collection of an oversized student newspaper (the Phoenix) using CONTENTdm software. The partnership provided mutual benefits for each institution. While Marian received an online collection, IUPUI used the digitization as an opportunity to house the collection as a digital sandbox for its School of Library and Information Science (SLIS) students. Other technological benefits came from the project, including experimentation with migration of collection from IUPUI servers to the PALNI (Private Academic Library Network of Indiana) consortium servers.
