About the Digital Media Repository

Vision

The Digital Media Repository, a project of the Ball State University Libraries, provides a centralized, coordinated, and user-focused resource to serve the teaching, learning, and research needs of students, faculty, and researchers at Ball State and beyond. It serves as a platform to bring together the digital collections and activities of the University Libraries in a single, cohesive, and accessible Web-based environment that also provides access to external digital resources to support the educational process.
