In May the Digital Library added its 10,000th item, an April 4, 1944 edition of The Villanovan, the University student newspaper. This issue featured numerous articles related to World War II.
Laura Bang, special and digital collections curatorial assistant, says that “[W]e have been steadily working on adding the individual issues to our Digital Library.”
The full story about the 10,000th item is in the Blue Electrode, the digital library blog.
Work is ongoing: see the current count for digitized works in the DL.
The Blue Electrode blog began July 16, 2007. Michael Foight, special collections and digital library coordinator, says, “The objective of the Blue Electrode column is to showcase an item or items recently digitized and displayed in the Villanova University Digital Library.”
Blue Electrode articles are written by members of the digital library team.
