    McMillan, Gail (Digital Library and Archives at Virginia Tech's University Libraries, 1997)
    Both units of this department focused on improving user access to unique materials or publications otherwise only available in paper. This lead not only to increased interaction with external library users, but also to better access for the library’s walk-in clients. Special Collections accessioned, processed, and prepared guides to collections; participated in collection development for the rare book, reference, and manuscript/archival collections; staffed the Reference Desk and answered questions from telephone, fax, mail, and e-mail; created and maintained, edited and made significant changes to the guides to special collections and contributed to new digital image resources, moving the prototype ImageBase to a production-scale resource for worldwide, networked access; created exhibitions of unique library resources to inform and attract users; and preserved the rare book, manuscript and archival collections for the future. The Scholarly Communications Project’s growing national reputation led to new scholarly online publications and formalization of experimental procedures such as digitizing and identifying images and archiving electronic theses and dissertations. ETD processing was scaled up, resulting in approximately 200 new titles being network-accessible in 1996/97. Eight new journal editors contact SCP during this reporting period, resulting in the online publication of four new journals, with at least two nearly ready for publication.

    McMillan, Gail (Digital Library and Archives at Virginia Tech's University Libraries, 2000)
    Online access to information increasingly spans the gap between traditional and innovative resources that are the Digital Library and Archives. Changing our name from Scholarly Communications Project was not too difficult and with excellent students we were able to unify the department's Web presence with a new department logo and uniform footers. This year we increased the number of Web sites hosting information; the usability of several DLA systems such as the IAWA Biographic Database; ETD processing, the VT ImageBase; and survey data gathering and results displays;. One huge advantage of the survey system is that it continually gathers data and tabulates results as each survey is completed, providing immediate feed-back. This would be particularly invaluable if there was more time and staff to implement what we learn from DLA clients! Among our major acquisitions was the Judge William M. Harris Collection of correspondence, poetry, and maps; the Peacock-Harper Culinary Collection; and new additions to the International Archive of Women in Architecture.

    For the first time since the Scholarly Communications Project and the Special Collections Department merged, the Digital Library and Archives began to work as a cohesive unit. With all vacancies filled and the addition of term appointments, the department has had time to plan (see DLA Goals App. A) for the future instead of just reacting to current demands or crises. DLA preserved, organized, and made accessible historical and current resources, and provided reference, instruction, and access to the unique resources in our rare books, manuscript, and archival collections. In addition, DLA worked with the university community to help them create online resources and to use digital library resources and services. More ETDs and digital images were available through systems designed and maintained by the department. Like University Libraries, DLA is dedicated to meeting the university community’s information, curricular, and research needs wherever they are located. DLA collaborated with members of the university community to collectively position the university as a top-tier research institution.
