The mission of the CUARL Digital Initiatives Committee is to foster cooperation among the University of Arkansas libraries as they work on making their unique materials available online to faculty, staff, students and the public. The first project provides a database of images of the presidents, chancellors and leaders of each of the participating institutions. This slice of Arkansas history adds to the web resources available to researchers and teachers.
