CONTENTdm Featured Collections: February 2019
Organizations worldwide are using CONTENTdm to create thousands of outstanding digital collections and to provide easy access to their unique holdings.
This month, three collections are featured on the OCLC website: Vanguard University Newspapers Collection, Robert L. Sigmon Collection, and Queen’s Film Theatre Brochure Archives Collection.
Started in 1948, the Vanguard University student newspaper published the various goings-on of Vanguard students. The student government would eventually change the title 12 times: Apocalypse, The Clock, The Vanguard Clock, The Vanguard Clarion, Clarion, New Wine Press, Vox Populi, Forward Magazine, Vanguard Tribune, SCC Times, The Vanguard Voice, and, to the current title, The Voice, which can be viewed online.
Elon University, Belk Library
This digital collection includes various documents related to service and experiential learning that Robert L. Sigmon compiled and authored throughout his career. The content includes essays, speeches, questionnaires, and data collected from his time at the North Carolina Internship Office, at the University of South Carolina, and in his various service-learning endeavors. The collection spans from the beginning of Sigmon's career in the 1960s to the early 2000s.
Queen’s University Belfast
This digital collection showcases decades of cultural cinema in Belfast, Northern Ireland (1968–2017). The collection consists of fully text-searchable programmes and flyers that contain images from and summaries of recent films, both classics and those long forgotten. The digitization and republication of the brochures was undertaken as part of the Queen’s Film Theatre’s 50th anniversary. It was the result of a collaboration between QFT and Special Collections in Queen’s University Belfast. The project was made possible through the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund.
