Our partners at Atlanta University Center Robert W. Woodruff Library are very excited to announce the following new digital collections from Spelman and Morehouse that they are hosting on Digital Commons as part of the CLIR Our Story grant.

A beautiful idea which places Alumni in touch with each other as time goes forward.
Users can find the Woodruff Library content in the Digital Library of Georgia (see http://dlg.galileo.usg.edu/Institutions/auu.html), the Woodruff library’s own site (http://digitalcommons.auctr.edu/), and in the Digital Public Library of America (https://dp.la/search?partner=%22Digital%20Library%20of%20Georgia%22&provider=%22Robert%20W.%20Woodruff%20Library%22&page=1).
Please do not separate this. I believe that the Woodruff Library has been digitizing the schools’ yearbooks in the AU Center for sometime now. I know that some CAU yearbooks are available for viewing and have been for a few years. Not sure about Morris Brown College, but I would certainly hope that they are included in this process. Let’s do a better job of being more “inclusive”, especially when we talk about the Atlanta University Center. Remember , “We Are All In This Together”. 🙂
