To document Mason’s modest beginnings to its current prominence, the University Libraries’ Special Collections and Archives recently launched “George Mason University: A History.”
The web portal is a digital exhibition detailing eras in Mason’s 60-year development in Northern Virginia. Each exhibit contains essays about the significant places, people and events within that era. The essays include links to illustrative digitized artifacts. While it is not meant to be a comprehensive history of Mason, the portal attempts to describe the important waypoints and issues, says John Zenelis, university librarian.
This online historical experience commences in 1949 and continues to the presidency of Ángel Cabrera.
Mason students and faculty enrolled in online courses at George Mason University have easy access to a wide variety of library resources and services right at their fingertips. Aim high – and stay on target! Find out what’s in it for you.
