University Libraries Partner with Yorktown-Mount Pleasant Historical Alliance to Generate New Digital Resources

Partnerships with local and regional cultural, historical, and educational organizations create the opportunity to develop new and stronger digital collections.

The University Libraries have a history of collaborations with area historical societies, public libraries, and other higher education institutions.

The University Libraries have partnered with the Yorktown-Mount Pleasant Historical Alliance to provide access to its historical materials through the Digital Media Repository (DMR). Students, faculty, scholars, researchers, and others can view 194 photographs and newspaper clippings from the organization’s collections in the DMR.

The materials document the history of Yorktown and Mount Pleasant Township, Indiana, from 1888 to 2007. For more information, contact John B. Straw, Assistant Dean for Digital Initiatives and Special Collections, JStraw@bsu.edu, 765-285-5078.
