SBU Libraries’ Special Collections’ guide to digital Long Island documents and books receives recognition.
Special Collections’ guide to digital Long Island documents and books was recently lauded by The Scout Report, a division of the College of Letters and Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The mission of the Long Island Historical Documents Collection is to acquire, organize, preserve, and provide access to primary and secondary source material that document the history of Long Island from the earliest settlers through the present, with a strong emphasis on the period of the American Revolution through the War of 1812 (1764-1812).
Scout is part of the National Science Foundation’s National Science Digital Library (NSDL) Project. NSDL aims to be the largest science, technology, engineering and math digital library ever created. The project’s acclaimed reports and resource archive provide educators, students, researchers, and librarians with information about the most valuable online resources. Published every Friday since 1994, it is read by more than 250,000 readers every week.
