Attend this virtual event to learn how the Digital Library Program and Special Collections Research Center are partnering to provide campus access to the University’s unique digital offerings while promoting their innovative reuse and exploration through teaching and learning.

This virtual event will highlight the challenges around the digital stewardship of rare and unique materials and share examples of current projects, including a multi-year effort to digitize, describe, and preserve the Bell Brothers Collection of Latin American and Caribbean Recordings, due to be released for the campus community as a stand-alone digital collection through a newly designed portal in Fall 2020. It will include a behind-the-scenes look at SCRC’s Belfer Audio Laboratory and Archive, home to the first studio ever designed solely for audio preservation.

This program is the first in a series about the Digital Library Program and how it engages with partners and colleagues to bring the University’s hidden, unique content into the digital light. The program is open to the public. Advance registration is required by emailing libevent@syr.edu with your name and email. The Zoom link will be sent to registered attendees the day in advance.

If you require an accommodation, please indicate such in your email.
