Future of Print

The need to develop new design strategies around print curation in the 21st-century academic library is driving ASU Library’s Future of Print initiative, with grant support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. With the aim to engage users in meaningful dialogues with print resources in an increasingly digital era, ASU Library is charting a new, sustainable course for libraries looking to maximize library spaces and the impact of its print collections.

Community-Driven Archives

The stories and influence of Latino, African-American, Asian-American and LGBT communities in Arizona are underrepresented in the state’s archival history. Under a new three-year project, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, ASU Library aims to develop and expand community-driven collections, in an effort to preserve and improve Arizona’s archives and give voice to historically marginalized communities.
