100 Digital Discoveries

The Publishing and Curation Services Department of the Penn State Libraries is proud to announce the launch of its new blog, 100 Digital Discoveries.

The goal of this blog is to put a spotlight on the various objects, collections, and projects to which Publishing and Curation Services and other departments and libraries contribute, or have contributed, an aspect of curation expertise.

The posts will be about various topics related to our digital collections (either born digital or which have been digitized for broader access and use): a specific object we find fascinating, how a collection has been used for research/teaching, how a project came into being, the different steps it takes to digitize a collection, etc. Our hope is that there will be innumerable discoveries arising from this blog, in both the writing and the reading of it.

Check out the first two posts about the Learning as Play project and the Advertising Trade Cards collection. And don’t forget to check back often as more posts will follow soon.
