Students, researchers, and the Memphis community now have online access to the digitized portions of the University Libraries' rich special collections through Content Pro, Innovative's digital collection management solution.

Of special significance is the digital repository's National African American Photographic Archive (NAAPA) collection. This collection is a collaborative project between The University of Memphis Libraries and Ampro Industries, Inc. of Memphis. The aim of the project is to collect, scan, and make available to the public photographs and informative metadata illustrating the daily and work lives and social activities of African Americans. The collection currently contains 374 images, which date from the 1880s to the 1980s. As the part of the ongoing project, the University Libraries solicits the donation or loan of significant materials from the public, along with background information, that it can digitize to help document of people, places, and events of importance to African American and American history and culture.

The University Libraries founded its digitization program for several reasons, says Dr. John E. Evans, Head of Library Information Systems and Coordinator of the Digital Repository: "Libraries have long been challenged and somewhat frustrated in their attempts to make their unique holdings accessible to the broader research community. By making use of Content Pro, we're able to represent, describe (to professional standards), and distribute to the world the artifacts, images, and documents in our collections that have remained hidden from view. This unpacking of the vault, as it were, offers one of the greatest opportunities to shed light on America's previously less documented past."

Evans says the University Libraries intends to grow for the number and variety of its digital collections: "The potential for the continued growth of these newly available resources is practically limitless. The versatility of Content Pro broadens our resource offerings by providing pathways to streaming audio and video in addition to renderings of static objects. Currently, we're focused on continuing to build our root collections of images from our Special Collections Department, as well as adding audio recordings of many years' worth of recitals from the School of Music."
