The Albin O. Kuhn Library & Gallery is proud to announce the launch of UMBC's Digital Collections. Featuring images and publications from across campus, this new resource will increase access to our unique holdings and expand the possibilities of use by faculty, staff, students, alums, and external researchers.
The Digital Collections website includes images from the Special Collections Photography Collections including Lewis Hine's child labor photographs, George Bretz's coal mining photographs, Civil War photos, and other important collections; selections from UMBC publications and photographs; electronic theses and dissertations starting in 2007; promotional materials from the Theatre Department productions (1967-2009); and the digital archive of The Retriever Weekly. New collections and images will be added throughout the year.
Access to the Digital Collections is available from the Library homepage or directly at http://contentdm.ad.umbc.edu. Training sessions for faculty and staff are scheduled for October 5th and October 13th; please sign up through the UMBC Training registration calendar. A student training session will be held October 14th. Librarians are also available for department or class focused instruction sessions.
Library staff would like to thank Linda Seguin, Janet Lee-Smeltzer, Sharon Favaro, Michael Johnson, Kenneth Huether, Gordon Potter, Terry Cook, Chris Corbett and The Retriever Weekly staff, Amy Houghton, and Amy Ciesielski for their assistance in the development and planning of this project.
