Digital Multimedia Collection
As part of university-wide efforts to continually improve the quality of its services and resources, the Library created the Digital Multimedia Collection to refine and broaden accessibility to its media resources. Hardcopy audiovisual materials, including VHS, DVD and CD items, have begun conversion to digital files, and are made available for online viewing and lending upon completion.
The Library anticipates the digitized items made available for lending. Hardcopy and digital audiovisual materials acquired by the Library following this process are evaluated, selected and added to the Digital Multimedia Collection on an ongoing basis. Physical materials are available for lending for DULA community members, while digitizal materials are only accessible by current DULA students, faculty and staff.
CAPSTONE Archival Collection
The Capstone Project is the culmination of a student’s work and study in the Doctorate of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (DAOM) program, demanding demonstrated application of knowledge gained through evidence-based practice and research. The project is a requisite to graduate and earn a clinical doctorate degree from DULA. Hardcopies of completed projects are retained by the Library for reference by future DAOM students.
In the university’s efforts to improve usability and accessibility of information resources, the Library instituted the Capstone Digitization Project. Capstone projects housed by the library have begun conversion to digital files for online consumption. Capstone projects are only accessible by current DULA students, faculty and staff.
The Library anticipates the full digitization of currently completed and published Capstone projects to be made available for lending through the Capstone Archival Collection. Subsequently, Capstone projects continue to be digitized and added to the Capstone Archival Collection on an ongoing basis.
For further information and assistance regarding capstone projects, contact with university librarian.
