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 are collaborating with UNC Press to digitize Appalachian Consortium Press publications, which will be made 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.
