images from DLA resources

From Norfolk & Western Railway train wreck. This early web exhibit shows images from a 1937 railroad accident in Mayberry, West Virginia.

DLA, a department in the University Libraries at Virginia Tech, began in 2000 with the merger of the Scholarly Communications Project (SCP) and Special Collections Department. SCP's focus since 1991 has been to work with the University community to host born-digital works such as faculty-edited electronic journals and ETDs completed by VT graduate students. Special Collections focuses on preserving and providing access to rare books, manuscript collections, and the University Archives.

Together, as DLA we also provide access to digitized Special Collections' materials such as photographs through the VT ImageBase. We create online resources such as the IAWA Biographical Database and we host a growing number of faculty projects and VT publications.

We also collaborate regionally, including hosting the South Atlantic Humanities Center and developing digital preservation strategies such as the MetaArchive for Southern Digital Culture.
