Ball State Board of Trustees Minutes Collection added to the DMR

The University Libraries are pleased to announce the addition of the BallState Board of Trustees Minutes Collection to the Digital Media Repository (DMR). This collection includes minutes between 1990 and 2012; additional years will be added in the future.

In order to provide optimal searching and viewing of these records, the University Libraries fast-tracked an installation and configuration of a new instance of CONTENTdm, the platform that powers the DMR. The latest CONTENTdm version fully supports in-document searching, page highlighting, collection browsing, and easy document downloading.

Members of the University Libraries staff in Library Information Technology Services, Archives and Special Collections, and Metadata and Digital Initiatives contributed to publishing this collection for search and discovery. Special thanks and recognition are also due to engineers in Unified Communications Services for making network configuration changes so the system is available everywhere.
