Digital Imagers Meeting
Sunday January 6, 2008 at 1:15, Pitt Scaife Hall, Room 1102
The DRL at University of Pittsburgh supports the teaching and research mission of the University, by serving users in creating Web-accessible digital collections. Since 1999 the DRL has digitized an extensive array of books, maps, images and other material from the collections of the Heinz History Center, Carnegie Museum of Art, Chatham College, and Pittsburgh's History & Landmarks Foundation. The DRL works with Pitt faculty and departments to make personal research collections accessible online for teaching and instruction. As coordinator of the DRL for over seven years, Ed Galloway will share his experiences building these multifarious projects.
