The South Central Regional Library Council (SCRLC) has awarded a Technology and Digitization Grant of $4583 to SUNY Cortland’s Memorial Library for the digitization of its student newspapers. This round of digitization will include The Co-No Press from 1925 through 1942 and The Dragon Chronicle from 2013 through 2017. Once digitization is complete they will be freely found at the New York State Historic Newspapers site at nyshistoricnewspapers.org along with newspapers from the early 1940s through 2013 that were previously digitized in 2017.
SCRLC’s Technology and Digitization Grants are funded as part of the Regional Bibliographic Data Bases and Interlibrary Resources Sharing (RBDB) Program.
Did you know?
During 2014-2015, Memorial Library’s Delta collection relocated from the second floor to the third floor. This left the second floor with bare walls that needed a fresh coat of paint and something to showcase. A small group of library staff members met with representatives of the Dowd Gallery to discuss ideas. They formed a partnership, and decided on a rotating display of student artists’ works in varied media to fill those bare walls. The student artists represent the diversity of all three schools on campus.
The library invites campus faculty, staff and students to visit the second floor of the library. Come and appreciate the artist in our students.
