Digital Initiatives

Welcome to the Pepperdine University Libraries home page for digital initiatives. Digital technology permeates today's library—you see it in our WorldCat Local search interface, in the myriad electronic journals and databases we subscribe to, and in the integration of calendaring and blogging features in our web site.

Here you will find links to some of our recent technology projects like iTunes U, a global distribution medium for podcasting lectures, performances, and all kinds of Pepperdine events. In addition to enabling information dissemination through podcasting, we are interested in facilitating new ways to create and share information. The PepWikis system now supports dozens of wikis, allowing groups to share information and documents, blogs and comments, course assignments, internal policies, task lists, calendars, and RSS feeds. In 2010 we launched Pepperdine Digital Collections, a project designed to facilitate the discovery of and access to a wide variety of digital materials drawn from Pepperdine's unique archival holdings. Our most recent initiative is Pepperdine Digital Commons, which offers an e-publication and digital archiving platform for the scholarly output of Pepperdine's vibrant academic community, including journals, faculty webpages, conference proceedings, exemplary student research, and more.

Finally, the academic enterprise is increasingly not only digital but mobile, so check out our Mobile Apps & Widgets page for the latest library applications that make your smartphone a research partner.
