Building collections to make deep and unexpected connections has been the daily work of the dedicated Lilly Library staff for six decades. For the last 12 months, a vision for online connection has inspired an intensive effort to completely reimagine the Lilly Library’s internet offerings.
“We have such beautiful digital content and there is so much more possibility now to bring it forward,” said Erika Dowell, Lilly Library associate director and curator of modern books and manuscripts.
This is the third time Dowell has led a complete website design for the Library. Nineteen years ago she joined the staff of Lilly Library, and website construction was one of her initial tasks. Quite a bit is different in the 2019 version.
