Syracuse University’s D’Aniello Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF), Syracuse University Libraries and the School of Information Studies (iSchool) partnered to create and launch the IVMF Digital Library at divmflibrary.syr.edu. It includes IVMF-authored publications and research, as well as curated collections of external research, articles and information from reputable sources. The digital library was developed for veteran entrepreneurs, employers of veterans and policymakers as a single source, open access information resource.
“The IVMF has impacted over 170,000 transitioning service members, veterans and military spouses to date with its nationally facing training programs as a result of Syracuse University’s commitment to advancing opportunities post-service for our nation’s veterans and their families,” says Nick Armstrong, Ph.D., managing director of research and analytics for IVMF. “The IVMF Digital Library is an important resource to ensure these military families, researchers, employers and others involved in supporting veterans have access to the latest insights, tools, research and data to facilitate collaborative and strategic opportunities.”
“This unique collaboration between the Libraries, IVMF and the iSchool is the culmination of thousands of hours of work to develop metadata, curate collections, ensure accessibility and provide an exceptional user experience in a non-traditional library space that can be accessed globally and freely,” says Scott Warren, associate dean of research excellence at Syracuse University Libraries.
