Beloit College Digital Collections News

ISR is pleased to announce that the Beloit College Digital Collections homepage (www.beloit.edu/bcdc) has been improved!  New enhancements include:

  • Seamless integration with other College web pages via the Reason content management system
  • Individual pages for each collection
  • Customized search boxes on each collection page

In addition to the new BCDC look, we are happy to announce the addition of the Pearsons Hall Collection, containing digitized correspondence, images, and postcards documenting the construction and early life of the building that once served as the College's science hall.  Designed by renowned architect Daniel Hudson Burnham, Pearsons Hall has served the campus for over a century.  This new collection includes fully-searchable letters to and from Burnham himself, as well images of the building's construction.  To see the collection and learn more about it, please visit www.beloit.edu/bcdc/pearsons/

The Library would like to thank all those involved with these projects:  Library volunteers Beth McGowan and Brett Fawcett; Library intern John Burns; Archivist Fred Burwell; and Melissa Dix and Matt Rose of Web Services.

Please contact Josh Hickman with comments, suggestions, or questions about these collections and enhancements.
