Through the Public Library Partnerships Project (PLPP), DPLA has been working with existing DPLA Service Hubs to provide digital skills training for public librarians and connect them sustainably with state and regional resources for digitizing, describing, and exhibiting their cultural heritage content.
It's that time of year again and we here at the Lowcountry Digital Library would like to cordially invite you to the 3rd annual Lowcountry Digital Library "State of the Union" meeting.
Topics covered will include:
Check out the Enhanced e-book for Katherine Mellen Charron's "Freedom's Teacher: The Life Of Septima Clark"! The Lowcountry Digital Library was lucky enough to be able to contribute some digital images and oral history clips to the project. Enjoy!
The South Carolina Digital Library (SCDL) is now represented in both the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS) Digital Collections and Content web portal and in Opening History: US Resources from Libraries, Museums and Archives. So far South Carolina, through SCDL, has added more items than any other state to this Illinois database of digital collections!
"The Lucille Hasell Culp Collection - A Celebration of Beaufort, South Carolina” contains a selection of 300 images, primarily photographic negatives, from the much larger Lucille Hasell Culp Collection. Here one finds selected images of enduring historical value to Beaufort, such as those relating to community and military events, built structures that are no longer extant or greatly altered, iconic architecture, commercial activities, natural vistas, and daily life, 1941 – 1999.
