Stony Brook University Libraries teamed up with Professor Peg Christoff from Stony Brook's Department of Asian and Asian American Studies to collaborate on an exciting digital initiative. Each semester, students in Christoff's Women in US-Asian Relations class propose, request, and conduct interviews with women making significant contributions in the field. Students record and analyze these interviews, and deliver a written report and class presentation of their findings. After each semester, files are sent to the University Libraries where the Digital Projects Librarian and the Web Services Librarian collaborate to make them available as a digital collection on the open source platform, Omeka. This initiative not only brings attention to these educational interviews, but also strengthens the bond between academic libraries and the departments they serve.
