Library Capturing Physical and Digital Materials Relating to Sullivan’s Resignation

June 21, 2012

“I believe we can all agree that we are experiencing a unique moment in both the history of the University of Virginia as well as the future of higher education. To that end, a small group has been formed to capture both the physical and the digital component of these historic events. We have been meeting with Caroline Walters, the University Records Officer, as well as the Faculty Senate to discuss the best means for objectively archiving these events.”
– Bradley Daigle, Director of Digital Curation Services/Digital Strategist for Special Collections
