The HBCU Library Alliance Digital Collection includes more than 16,000 images representing HBCU libraries' first collaborative effort to make a historical collection digitally available. As HBCUs face challenges and threats, the HBCU Library Alliance Board of Directors has re-focused on preserving and protecting the valuable collections in member institutions. A recent survey of HBCU Library Alliance member institutions, with more than a 75% response rate, revealed needs, concerns, applications and interests regarding the Digital Collection. This program will share survey highlights, models of success and the Board's strategic actions in response to survey results
