Objective 3

We will know we have addressed this imperative when the library develops international partnerships with librarians in countries with low gross national income (GNI) per capita to foster the digitization of ”at risk” materials.

The Seminary will enter into dialogue with librarians in low GNI per capita countries about designing programs (including plans for site surveys, standards, technology, training and support) to digitize and provide access to fragile, rare, and endangered materials (whether in manuscript, printed, or digital form). The Seminary will begin with a pilot test in the near term and cultivate several global partnerships (especially via existing alumni/ae networks) in the long term.
