HBCU Library Alliance Leadership Program

HBCU Library Alliance Leadership Program is funded by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the primary objective of the Leadership Program is to provide theoretical and practical instruction and useful resources to encourage the development of leadership skills within the HBCU library community and on their own campuses. This program consists of six components: the Pilot  Institute, Institute I, Institute II, an exchange between HBCUs and non-HBCUs, fellowships to SOLINET workshops, and site visits and mentoring.

As a member of HBCU libraries, FSU chose to Implement an institutional repository for the HBCU Library Alliance Mentoring Program Project. The goal of this project is to have an electronic forum where faculty, students and staff can publish scholarly information under the brand name of Fayetteville State University.


HBCU Library Leadership Institute II Project Report

Institutional repositories are on the minds of most academic librarians - and many questions continue to be asked: Should we have one? What platform should we use? Who does the work of setting it up? Marketing it? Maintaining it? Two academic librarians, one at an institution where implementation has begun and one at an institution where planning is in the works, will address aspects of such an undertaking, especially regarding how an institutional repository impacts technical services work flows and staffing. Eleanor Cook (Coordinator of Serials & Binding, Belk Library, Appalachian State University) and Evelyn Council (Associate Director for Collection Development, Chesnutt Library, Fayetteville State University)
