Lizah Ismail, Director of the Library, will present with three other panelists at the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) 2017 Virtual Conference. The presentation is called “Transforming Hidden Collections for Teaching and Learning: Four Libraries and their Journey into Digitization.”  In 2015, Council of Independent Colleges (CIC) forty-two member libraries joined the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation funded Consortium on Digital Resources for Teaching and Research. This Consortium seeks to improve teaching and learning, creating collaborative research opportunities through offering access to Shared Shelf, a digital asset storage and content delivery management system.

This panel showcases four Consortium member institutions with panelists offering their Consortium experiences related to creating and implementing digitization projects.  The three other panelists are from the following independent colleges: University of Saint Mary, Methodist University, and Hampden-Sydney College. The panel will also be available through a webcast. Information about the conference can be found here.
