Cuban Theater Digital Archive
The University of Miami Libraries and the College of Arts and Sciences have received a generous grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to rebuild the technical and organizational infrastructure for the Cuban Theater Digital Archive, a unique digital collection of Cuban theater resources. "The CTDA is a fantastic example of how the University of Miami Libraries support interdisciplinary scholarship using innovative new media," said Dean and University Librarian William Walker. "We are grateful for the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation's recognition of our commitment to this unique scholarly resource. We hope that our partnership with the College of Arts and Sciences will serve as a model for other creative digital humanities initiatives at the University and beyond."
