Digital Showcase Policies: Relationship to Other Collections

Other Collections

The Knight-Capron Library maintains separate platforms for the curation of digital collections in different units. The nature and potential use of specific digital content will determine which unit should manage that content, and on which platform it should be housed:

  • Digital content which falls within the collection parameters described in this policy will be housed and managed in Digital Showcase.
  • Digital content that is determined to possess predominantly historical value, or which is properly considered to constitute a primary archival resource, will be housed and managed by the University Archives. 
  • Administrative records and documents from Lynchburg College offices and academic units will generally be deemed to fall outside of the scope of Digital Showcase collections; such content will be considered for inclusion in the University Archives.
