Two New DMR Collections

I am pleased to announce two new collections available in the Digital Media Repository:

Ball State University Course Catalogs – This digital collection contains the course catalogs from 1918 to 1998.  The collection also link to the catalogs from 1998 to present that Ball State already has available on the University Web site. 

Ball State Alumni Memorabilia – This digital collection consists of Ball State memorabilia donated by alumni and maintained at the Alumni Center.  We are scanning and photographing the collection there to create this digital version in the DMR.  The first installment is all photographs dating from 1918 to 2001 relating to student life.  The collection will be expanded to include other media types, including artifacts such as banners, pins, clothing, etc.
