HBCU-CUL Digitization Initiative

The HBCU Library Alliance and Cornell University Library collaboration, "Building Collections, Building Services, and Building Sustainability: A Collaborative Model for the HBCU Library Alliance", is a nationwide initiative to prepare HBCU librarians to produce digital collections and to develop an Internet-based, searchable database of HBCU library materials with descriptive information and select digitization of historic pages.  Funded by a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and managed by the Cornell University Library, this unique project is one of the first in the nation to build a national framework for digitization of collaborative HBCU library cultural heritage materials and addresses a full-range of digitization needs of historically black college and university libraries. These rich digital resources will be developed and permanently maintained at individual HBCU libraries and the HBCU Library Alliance.Questions or Comments? Send email to: sphoenix@hbculibraries.org
