Two decades after the advent of the Web, digital collections are a regular part of academic library business. This seminar’s leaders reviewed some new approaches to digital collections taken by libraries at small colleges. In particular, they discussed collections developed around faculty teaching and research interests, student-created collections and exhibits, library publishing programs, and library support for digital field scholarship. In this seminar, Mark Dahl, NITLE fellow and director of the Aubrey R. Watzek Library at Lewis & Clark College, and panelists Mark Christel, director of libraries at the College of Wooster, Anneliese Dehner, digital projects developer at Lewis & Clark, Isaac Gilman, assistant professor and scholarly communications and research services librarian at Pacific University, and Allegra Swift, head of scholarly communications and publishing for the Claremont Colleges Library, delved into new directions for digital collections. These slides are from Anneliese's presentation.
