Lowcountry Digital History Initiative Recognized by American Library Association


The annual list of Best Historical materials was announced by the Reference and User Services Association (RUSA) Book and Media Awards Ceremony at the American Library Association’s Midwinter Meeting.

The list, in its 11th year, recognizes the evaluation and effectiveness in coverage of historical resources in all fields of history. Published in Reference and User Services Quarterly (RUSQ), these sources are selected by a committee that seeks to improve the usefulness of bibliographies and indexes in the field of history and shared among bibliographers, indexers, publishers and professional associations.

This year, the College of Charleston’s own, Lowcountry Digital History Initiative was granted the distinguished honor of being named one of the Best Historical Materials of 2015.
