Digital Initiatives Center

Welcome to the Future of Law Libraries

The Digital Initiatives Center at FIU Law Library curates legal scholarship in electronic format and provides open access to these resources through FIU Law Library’s eCollections @ FIU Law Library institutional repository. Content is curated in both born-digital and digitized formats. The Center undertakes the full digitization process of FIU Law Library’s Special Collections, thereby creating unique, open access digital libraries of Caribbean Law, Cuban Law, and other special collections.


Partnerships and Milestones

The Center partners with FIU Digital Collections Center and the FIU Division of Information Technology. By working together, the technological resources and infrastructure necessary to build digital collections are shared, maximizing workflows and curation potential. FIU Law Library also shares its digital Caribbean legal materials on the Digital Library of the Caribbean (dLOC) and ensures further discovery of its open access materials through integration with Worldcat.

To date, the Digital Initiatives Center has

eCollections @ FIU Law Library

. . . the digital institutional repository for FIU Law. This open-access repository, powered by the Digital Commons platform, is the online gateway for content curated by the Digital Initiatives Center. The repository acts as both an archive of FIU College of Law scholarship – including the scholarly works of the school’s faculty, students and staff – and as an access point for FIU Law Library’s digitized Special Collections.
