The Yale University Library's Electronic Library Initiatives (ELI) program is a focused effort to facilitate and study the use of digital images and other materials in teaching, learning, and scholarship.
Current ELI Course Support Projects:
Davis Educational Foundation Grant Project: A grant from the Davis Educational Foundation will be used to explore and develop collections-based teaching and learning at Yale. This three year project began in January 2005.
American Digital Imaging Project: A $250,000 grant facilitated the design
of study tools and the building of collections of digitized images to support
American studies, teaching and scholarship. Over three years, the
grant also funded assessment of faculty and student experiences with using
digital images and the impact of these new materials on teaching and learning. This project ended in April 2005.
