A three-year programme, funded by a generous grant from the Arcadia Fund, to explore the role of academic libraries in a digital age, create new programmes and services, and to improve the external environment of the library
The Arcadia Programme is a three-year programme funded by a generous grant from the Arcadia Fund to Cambridge University Library. The grant will enable us to explore the role of academic libraries in a digital age, create new programmes and services, particularly for undergraduates - and also to improve the external environment of the library.
A major part of the Programme is the Arcadia Fellowship Programme which will bring talented people to Cambridge to work on aspects of this very broad subject. Arcadia Fellows will work on projects aimed at increasing the library's capability to provide users with services appropriate to a networked world. Each Fellowship will have 'deliverables' (broadly defined) associated with it and our findings and outputs will be shared with colleagues in the academic library community worldwide.
This DSpace@Cambridge collection will contain the Arcadia project reports.
