The Northeastern University Digital Library - Building Our Global Vision:

Northeastern Libraries is poised to make its mark in the digital world. A team of specialists is digitizing many of our unique collections that document social justice efforts in the Boston area, such as Freedom House, a Roxbury-based organization that promoted neighborhood improvement, good schools, and racial harmony. Librarians are also creating digital learning tools for students, and library programs are being filmed and broadcast to the global community through the internet. Additionally, the Library continues to build Northeasterns Institutional Repository, IRis, a digital archive of scholarship, digital objects, and university records.

We have an ambitious vision to expand our digital initiatives and create unique collections that both document the history of Northeastern and its neighbors, and serve Northeastern's research and teaching mission. Your investment toward staffing, equipment, software, and servers will help us to achieve this vision. Thank you! (Donate Now). We invite you to learn more about our unique digital collections and how you can help make them available by contacting Maria Carpenter at 617-373-28221 or
