The Mellon Partners for Humanities Education are excited to announce the Cross-Campus Network for Digital Projects.  This project recently recieved a grant to support pilot digitization projects at
each Mellon Partners campus. These projects will highlight special archival collections from each campus and build on new digital infrastructure recently implemented across the Mellon Partners network. These new digital projects will assist faculty outreach efforts by archivists and librarians on all campuses by demonstrating the great potential of digital archives for innovative research and teaching. Each campus will host a public showcase of completed projects in 2020.
