Dear TC Community,
Pocketknowledge, the digital repository of Teachers College, Columbia University, is being migrated to the Gottesman Libraries' services platform.
Users will now be able to search for historical materials via EDUCAT+, the definitive record of library holdings at Teachers College. EDUCAT+ provides a universal viewer that displays captions, with options to zoom in on high resolution images in different formats, enhancing accessibility and allowing for high-speed downloads.
Users can explore examples of Teachers College Digital Collections already online, including Education Manuscripts, the Ukrainian Children’s Art Collection, the Ukrainian Education Photograph Collection, a portion of the James Earl Russell Papers, and much more. Additionally, we invite users to weigh in on our new repository by joining focus groups being held over Zoom in May and June.
Since we will be migrating select collections over time, we strongly encourage users who have uploaded their specially authored materials to PocketKnowledge to find and download them before August 31st, 2023.
Sign Up for a Focus Group.
Read more about the migration project here, and contact us if you have any questions or would like further information.
The project team comprises: Conrad Lochner, Special and Digital Collections Librarian; Jon Macmillan, Director, IT Project Management Office; Kalli Mathios, Head of Technical Services and Metadata Librarian, and Jennifer Govan, Library Director and Senior Librarian, with assistance from Iraida Torres, Head of Operations (Library); and Tim Conley, Web Services and Systems Librarian.
