Maida Library Awarded Grant for Digital Archive!

 

Well, it’s not bragging if it’s true, right?  Our humble Library has won a grant, along with three local academic libraries, to begin a digital archive repository.   So bring your memorabilia, dissertations and photographs to the Library, we’ve got more than the space – we’ve got D SPACE.

 

Dspace

The Detroit Area Library Network (DALNET) has recently announced plans to begin work on a DALNET Digital Archive Repository, where several unique collections will be available for free online access to DALNET institutions, researchers and the public.

Hosted by the University of Detroit Mercy, the repository will be built using DSpace, an open-source software product that preserves and enables easy and open access to all types of digital content including text, images, moving images, mpegs and data sets. “I am pleased that DALNET will be developing this resource and that long standing members, the University of Detroit Mercy, are playing an integral part in making this happen,” said DALNET Executive Director, Steven Bowers. “The Board has wanted to pursue such a project for several years.”

To begin the project, the DALNET Board of Directors awarded a major grant to four of its member institutions: Adam Cardinal Maida Alumni Library, Detroit Medical Center, Marygrove College and Oakland Community College.  After initial implementation, the service will be available to all DALNET members that wish to participate.

DALNET is a community of libraries working together to provide access to information for research, cultural enrichment, and lifelong learning opportunities.  Hosted at Wayne State University since 1985, DALNET enables libraries to maximize their investments through shared resources. Over the past two decades, the consortium has grown to 20 member libraries that serve the information needs of their users through innovative, collaborative networking among various types of libraries and their personnel in southeast Michigan.
