Thomas R. Ryan Diaries now in DMR


We are pleased to announce a new collection in the Digital Media Repository:  The Thomas L. Ryan Diaries, 1886-1890,  http://libx.bsu.edu/cdm4/collection.php?CISOROOT=/RynTms.   These diaries of Muncie native Thomas Ryan are from both Archives and Special Collections and the Muncie Public Library.  The collection is part of the What Middletown Read project and is a collaboration between the University Libraries and Muncie Public Library to make digital copies of diaries of early Muncie residents from both repositories available for research in the DMR for “one-stop research.”

The Muncie and Delaware County Historic Photographs in the Digital Media Repository


We are pleased to announce that 19 new small photograph collections consisting of 102 images are now available under The Muncie and Delaware County Historic Photographs in the Digital Media Repository:  http://libx.bsu.edu/cdm4/collection.php?CISOROOT=/MunHisPhoto 

This new area of the DMR consists of collections of historic photographs of Muncie and Delaware County from Archives and Special Collections.  The total number of collections will eventually grow to around 400 consisting potentially of upwards of  5,000 images.  It is an eclectic group that will now be much more accessible to researchers.  This is a great beginning that will contribute to the continuing growth and usefulness of the DMR.

Thanks to everyone for their work (and their ongoing work) to make these collections available!
