Discovering MBDA

This series was initiated during spring 2012 to invite project participants to explore MBDA beyond their important work with imaging and editing and to identify connections between historically and culturally significant documents in the collection and their studies, their careers, and even their lives. Discovering MBDA is currently edited by Berry College student Allison Moore. Previous editors include Bloomsburg University student Rebecca Howells and Berry College student Chelsea Risley.
