The Wallace Library’s Digital Initiatives department collaborates with librarians, archivists, faculty, students and other institutional divisions on digital projects that advance the academic mission of the College. We support teaching, learning and pedagogy by leveraging our technical expertise and disciplinary experience. We can help you develop and manage projects, write relevant grant proposals, design and maintain web applications, evaluate digital platforms for project implementation, create and embed metadata schemata, conceptualize systems and navigate issues of copyright, licensing, fair use and digital citizenship.

Our Digital Collections

The Wheaton College Digital Repository

Wheaton College’s digital repository is a platform where we collect, preserve and distribute born-digital and digitized materials. Like the Gebbie Archives, the digital repository serves as an important hub for the preservation of Wheaton’s legacy by making our collections accessible and promoting scholarly communications.

The Digital Initiatives department curates the collections featured here. Contact us to learn more about our collection development policy.
