The past several months have been busy for the Beloit College Digital Collections! First, the library is very excited to announce the arrival of our newest digital collection, Logan African Expeditions – Photographs, Articles, and Memorabilia. This collection contains a variety of memorabilia related to several expeditions to Algeria during the 1920s and 30s led by Professor Alonzo Pond. These expeditions helped expand the Logan Museum’s collections and generated a great deal of interest around campus as evidenced by several articles in the Round Table.
To view some of the artifacts gathered at the expeditions, you may want to check out the Logan Museum of Anthropology digital collection. In recent weeks, over 500 new items have been added to that collection. Speaking of museum collections, have a look at the Wright Museum of Art digital collection, which has also grown recently with the addition of nearly 200 new items (access to this collection is limited to on-campus users only). Both museums continue to contribute digital images to the growing Asian Studies Collection, as well.
Keep checking back with the Digital Collections for announcements about new additions! We’re presently working on several exciting new collections, including histories of the college, letters from college associates, and the history of WBCR.
