Joint presentation with Sheli McHugh at the February 27, 2014 University of Scranton IT Forum.
Throughout the Weinberg Memorial Library’s 20th Anniversary celebration in 2012-2013, Dean Charles Kratz reflected on the idea of looking back while also looking forward, preserving the history and heritage of the University while also sustaining and advancing innovative research, teaching, and learning at the University. To fulfill this dual role, the Library has collaborated extensively with Information Resources on technology tools, from hardware and software to wiring and wireless infrastructure. In this presentation, Learning Commons Coordinator Sheli McHugh will discuss the ongoing development of the technology-rich Reilly Learning Commons (scheduled to open in Fall 2014), while Digital Services Librarian Kristen Yarmey will share the Library's progress and long-term plans for capturing, preserving, and providing access to born digital resources, such as University records, publications, and web pages, as well as digitized materials from the Library's Archives and Special Collections.
