A Student's Narrative Reflection on Digitally Archiving
Librarians work with faculty individually to create mini-grant applications. These mini-grants describe how the projects will be used in the curriculum, how students will contribute or benefit from the collection, and what types of technology will be needed to generate a successful collection.
The NGL project helped library staff recognize the importance of digital collections to the liberal arts college library, and add digitial workflows to current practices.
