Welcome to the flickr account of the Villanova University Digital Library!
Villanova University's Digital Library initiative assembles, presents, and preserves digital collections that support the teaching and research of the campus and the global community of scholars. We work with faculty, staff and regional partners to select and develop resources that enhance access for a wide range of disciplines and audiences.
With the exception of the images in our Image Collection (filed under Miscellanea here on flickr) and items which are too fragile, we scan everything as full-text preservation copies. The permanent link located in the description field of each image leads to the corresponding item page in our Digital Library browser, where you can see the image in its full context.
Please feel free to add tags, notes, and comments! We are only adding tags that correspond to the collection the images come from and one or two basic subject tags. We are interested in nearly any insight you would like to add, but we do reserve the right to remove any tags, notes, or comments that are deemed offensive or otherwise inappropriate.
Most of the items in our collection are in the public domain and we have made our scans available under a Creative Commons license. Those are the only items that will be available on our flickr account. Check the item's page on our Digital Library (there is a direct link to the item page in each image's description field) to verify the specific version of the Creative Commons license that applies to that item.
This account is maintained by Laura Bang, Special & Digital Collections Curatorial Assistant. If you have any questions or concerns, I can be reached via flickrmail or via email at laura.bang [at] villanova [dot] edu.
