VCU Libraries hosts a growing digital library collection: digital collections, which represent sets of digitized materials from VCU Libraries Special Collections and Archives or partner community organizations; digital exhibits and projects, which tell stories using innovative technologies; and institutional repository materials, which represent the scholarly output of the VCU community.
