Fant Memorial Library recently received major donations to add new technologies for the creation of a Digitization and Conservation Lab, an Archives Classroom, and a new student Seminar Room.  The new additions will be open in Fall 2019.

Also in Fall 2019, Fant will begin offering a Digital Studies Minor. Beginning with teaching Introduction to Digital Research (LIB 201), Undergraduate Research Coordinator and Instruction Librarian Hillary Richardson will be mentoring students through the interdisciplinary program, which will culminate in the Digital Studies Practicum (LIB 401).  The students will rely heavily on the new Smith Papers donation of 4000 letters and 90 journals as part of the class this fall.  Results will appear in the library‚Äôs new Institutional Repository, Athena Commons.
