Bennington College Digital Repository, Bennington College

Bennington College needed a solution with built-in technical support for storing and making student's electronic theses and dissertations along with a collection of scanned high quality images and film. DSpaceDirect is a good solution, says Oceana Wilson, Director of Library and Information Services Crossett Library, “We have a small staff and don't have an archivist. Keeping up with archival records is an ongoing challenge. There is an interest within the campus community to access the archive as as well as external audiences, such as scholars of modern dance history.  By making our archive accessible we boost archival access for researchers on and off campus. Our records can be found on the Web with DSpace.”
