New Library Website

The University Library website is changing to better serve our students, faculty, and community.  On the site, you’ll find the same great information in a more streamlined form.  The Search Everything box allows you to find books, media, journals, databases, and, well, everything (ok, almost everything).

Please give it a try, and offer feedback using the link found throughout the site.

Digital Humanities Report

The Washington and Lee University Library is an active participant in W&L’s growing Digital Humanities iniative, which began life as an exploration of “new ways to use technology in the University’s humanities disciplines.”

W&L recently announced that several leaders of this group, including Associate University Librarian Jeff Barry, Associate Professor of German Paul Youngman, Associate Professor of Computer Science Sarah Sprinkle, and Director of Academic Technologies Julie Knudson, have published an online paper that offers “a case history of the development of digital humanities (DH) at Washington and Lee University.”
