Projects, Partnerships and Events

Our projects are deliberately focused on partnerships within the university, with community organizations, and other libraries.

  • We create digital projects and sponsors speakers, conferences, and workshops.
  • We can develop, manage and disseminate datasets, digital collections and webpages, and digital publications.

Examples – Appalachian State University partners

  • Appalachian Consortium Press Publications Digitization: With funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation we collaborated with UNC Press to digitize Appalachian Consortium Press publications, which are freely available as epubs and PDF documents. 
  • Digital History Class: A collaboration with Kristen Deathridge from History is training students to create websites and exhibits for multiple local history organizations using the Omeka content management software.
  • Open Access Publishing: We are working with the Center for Developmental Education to digitize the Journal of Developmental Education and offer it as an open access publication.
  • Dissemination of data sets: Multiple faculty have consulted with us on the dissemination of their data sets to satisfy grant requirements.

Examples – Community partners
