Oregon State University (OSU) Libraries has been awarded a National Leadership Grant for Libraries from the Institute of Museum and Library Services in the amount of $155,464. This two-year Demonstration Project, led by OSU in collaboration with the University of Oregon, Purdue University, the Georgia Institute of Technology, and Pennsylvania State University, will facilitate a multi-university study of faculty data management plans (DMPs). DMPs provide a window into the detailed individual data management habits, capabilities, and needs of faculty and their graduate students.

Acquisitions

The photo archive of El Diario La Prensa, the nation’s oldest continuously publishing Spanish-language newspaper, has been acquired by Columbia University Libraries/Information Services’ Rare Book & Manuscript Library. The collection, which dates from the 1960s and includes more than 5,000 photographs, documents the lives of New York City’s Latino population, their struggles, and their contributions to the city and its culture. The collection includes photos of entertainers, politicians, community events, parades, protests, and sporting events: Mayor David Dinkins at the 1990 Puerto Rican Day parade, children at a Three Kings Day celebration in East Harlem, Fernando Ferrer campaigning for Bronx borough president in 1986, and Tito Puente playing the timbales on Sesame Street with Elmo, among many others.
