Digital Media Repository
Vision: The Digital Media Repository of the Ball State University Libraries provides a centralized, coordinated, and user-focused resource to serve the teaching, learning, and research needs of students, faculty, and researchers at Ball State and beyond. It serves as a means to bring together the digital collections and activities of the University Libraries in a single, cohesive, and accessible Web-based environment that also provides access to external digital resources to support the educational process.
The focus of this initiative is to accelerate the development and digital accessibility of these unique interdisciplinary materials by creating an infrastructure that allows students, faculty, and researchers to bring together concepts, data, discoveries, ideas, interpretations, and methods in powerful new ways. Through the Initiative, the University Libraries will act as a strategic, global access point for all types of e-content for the Digital Revolution's 24/7/365 information society. In addition, Ball State University's Digital Media Repository will be instrumental in adding to this growing corpus of international digital content.
Funding for CONTENTdm, the digital content management system used for the Digital Media Repository, was made possible through the generous support of the Friends of the Alexander M. Bracken Library and the estate of Judith Cobb.
