Smart Stacks

In an era of many mobile devices, short space and short budgets, the University of Dayton Libraries are turning to data analysis and technology to ensure access to resources, reduce spending, make optimal use of space and build modern collections around user demand.

Libraries

Open Access Research Data

The University of Dayton Libraries are continuously adding to their expertise on open data and structuring library services to assist faculty and students with data management planning and archiving. Several pending grant proposals contain library-supported data management plans, and UD’s open-access institutional repository, eCommons, is one of many available outlets faculty have for storing and archiving data for future research.

Libraries

Special Collections in the Classroom

The University Libraries have a trove of rare and one-of-a-kind books, documents, sacramentals, relics and other treasures in their special collections, ranging from baseball cards and holy cards to saintly relics and sheet music. But they’re a well-kept secret. The Libraries are working to build awareness of the collections so that students, faculty and researchers can use them in their courses and scholarly work.

Libraries

The Marian Forum

A new interactive Marian conference started in the fall of 2015 illustrates the Libraries’ commitment to promoting and facilitating scholarship on the Blessed Virgin Mother. Held in person and online, the Marian Forum has attracted more than 200 participants from across the United States and 15 foreign countries.

Faith/mission

Grounds for a Marian Eco-Spirituality
