About the Collection

General

The William C. Jason Library uses digital technology to collect, preserve, and provide access to information, to support the research and teaching at Delaware State University. The digital collections are open to students, faculty, staff, alumni and the general public.

Our digitized material is not an exact reproduction of the original materials. Our materials are of good quality, and design to allow our patrons to view them on their desktop computers or mobile devices. When possible, to increase access through full-text search, we digitized the materials with optical character recognition.
