OU Artstor Shared Shelf Project & Pi Kappa Delta/FCHM Display

The Artstor Shared Shelf Project is a 3-year Project through the Council of Independent Colleges sponsored by the Mellon Foundation providing selected Colleges and Universities throughout the United States to build Teaching Collections in Artstor Shared Shelf. Ottawa University's Project has two Collections that will be built over the next two and a half years in collaboration with Dr. Kelly Fish-Greenlee of the Sociology and Social Anthropology Departments and with Ryan Louis of the Chair of Forensics and the Communications Department.

The two collections that can be currently viewed on Artstor Shared Shelf are:

1. Ottawa Native American Collection which will include the John Henry Kilbuck Collection and a Collection of resources for the class SOC 30152: Indigenous Peoples in the Contemporary World

2. The Pi Kappa Delta Collection is a digitized collection of documents and resources related to the History of the Pi Kappa Delta National Honor Society, Alpha Chapter that was established on the campus of Ottawa University at the turn of the 20th century.
