Of particular interest are the Langmuir and Sherman African-American photography collections.

Access to Digital Editions

Open access to a variety of materials digitized by Emory are available through the Internet Archive and HathiTrust Digital Library.  

Digitized collections will be accessible via the Emory Preservation Repository, which is a key deliverable of the Digital Library Program (DLP).  The DLP is a multi-year Emory Libraries and LITS initiative to promote best practices and provide long term access to Emory's unique digital assets and collections. A key offering of the Program is to develop a versatile and feature rich digital repository platform using the open source Samvera (formerly Hydra) framework.  The Digital Library Program works closely with the Digital Collections Steering Committee to establish policies and best practices for digital collection development and digital preservation. 


Highlights of some of our digitized books include: 


Audiovisual Resources

Digital versions of many of the audiovisual resources from MARBL and Emory University Archival Collections are available for viewing at a kiosk in the MARBL reading room.  To find out what is available, search through MARBL's finding aids database.  Many of the 20th and 21st Century collections contain a series for "Audiovisual Materials."   If you see an indication in the finding aid that the item has been digitized, then it should be available for viewing on-site.
