This blog has been created in conjunction with the receipt of an IMLS grant. Delaware State University, an HBCU, will use this grant to establish an archival fellowship program in the archival unit of the William C. Jason Library. Funds will be used to hire two nine-month archival fellows, as well as two summer interns. Collection materials will be arranged, described, and made available for use by faculty, students, alumni, and the general public. The archival unit will conduct campus outreach through the creation of a historic campus walking tour. This blog will be used to post updates on progress, introduce project staff, and share interesting collection items.

This project was made possible in part by the Institute for Museum and Library Services grant number MH-00-13-0013-13 from the Museum Grants for African American History and Culture program.

The Institute of Museum and Library Services is the primary source of federal support for the nation’s 123,000 libraries and 17,500 museums.
