Toolkit Community

No one wants to reinvent the wheel but everyone’s wheel is slightly different, that’s why our Toolkit Network space includes lots of sharing opportunities: forums, your marketing ideas & press announcements, project document & policy templates, and more.

Our toolkit users are sharing their experiences on everything from digitization (how do I remove background noise from audio recordings?) to censorship policy (how do I handle complaints about newspaper content in my index?) to graphics for their VITA sites (HTML code for creating an auto-resize banner).

Subscribing to VITA means joining a flow of activity. Your toolkit equals your toolkit community.
