Abstract

In 2015, The Council of Independent Colleges (CIC) offered small private academic member colleges an opportunity to compete by writing collection proposals, for a three year grant digitizing teaching and research collections, funded by the Andrew C. Mellon Foundation. Forty-two CIC member teams were selected to participate in the Consortium on Digital Resources for Teaching and Research. Teams consisted of a librarian, and a faculty member, who worked with CIC and Artstor staff, using Artstor Shared Shelf to digitize proposed collections. Teams made digital collections accessible and usable in the classroom, wrote yearly project reports for CIC and attended yearly team workshops in Washington, DC. Two Kansas teams were selected in 2015: the University of St. Mary, De Paul Library and Ottawa University, Gangwish Library.

The University of St Mary team consisted of the special collections librarian, a history professor and the library director. The team has digitized photographs and ephemera from the Bernard H. Hall Abraham Lincoln collection.

The Ottawa team consisted of two faculty members and the library director. The team digitized two Sociology teaching collections: The John Henry Kilbuck Collection, a collection of Yup’ik Indian artifacts, SOC 30152: Indigenous People in the Contemporary World Collection, a collection of Ottawa Indian articles and images and an archival collection for Communications, Pi Kappa Delta: National Honor Society for Forensics.

Session presenters will provide a description of how the team projects have been implemented at their colleges, what has been learned during implementation and how projects have benefited their student communities and how they will be used for teaching in the future.
