Digital Archive Project

Philander Smith College Digital Archive Project was initiated in March 2016 to facilitate online access to the unique archival holdings of the D. W. Reynolds Library for research and to promote the scholarship, accomplishments and history of the institution. 

The Digital Archive Project will consist of four phases spanning from 2016-2017 with the goal of digitizing the most significant and frequently requested documents, images and texts that are currently held in the Archives physical collection. Digitizing these valuable items will aid researchers to learn more about the history of Philander Smith College.  It will also help limit the handling of the most fragile artifacts in the collection to ensure the preservation of these objects in perpetuity.
