Welcome to the new project blog for the Delaware State University Archives and Special Collections! This blog is being created as part of a grant-funded project that was recently begun by the archives.
In August 2013, we were awarded a grant from the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS) through their Museum Grants for African-American History and Culture program. The project officially kicked off on October 1st. For more about the grant, please visit our About page.
Throughout the project, we will be using this blog for a number of things. First, to introduce you to this newly formed department (more on the history of the archives is coming in the next few weeks, stay tuned!) and its staff, including permanent staff and grant personnel. Second, we will keep you informed about our progress in processing, digitizing items, and creating finding aids. Third, we will share some unique and exciting finds with you. Fourth, we will inform you about outreach events being held at the archives. Lastly, this blog is a way for us to interact with our patrons through responding to comments or questions about any blog post topics.
We look forward to getting to know our readers, so feel free to leave us questions or comments down below!
