Creating and Sustaining Digital collections at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU)

A partnership with the HBCU (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) Alliance, a coalition of HBCU library deans and directors, to foster the research and teaching of scholars specializing in African-American Studies, the American South, American Democracy, cultural pluralism and other related discipline. The Cornell Library has trained HBCU library staff at dozens of historically black colleges and universities across the country to build and promote sustainable digital collections from their institutions' archives resulting in "A Digital Collection Celebrating the Founding of the Historically Black College and University." With funding provided by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
