Back to the Future: Historically Black Liberal Arts Colleges as Potential Training Ground for Future Digital Library Leaders
Shaundra Walker
Georgia College, United States of America
 
Historically black liberal art colleges have played a significant role in developing African American leaders. Therefore, it should not be a surprise that libraries at these institutions have similarly developed library leaders.

The Indigenous Digital Archive: Making Digital Access More Effective and More Social
Anna Naruta-Moya
