DCDL’s 5 Year Anniversary & Website Contractor Announcement!

Today marks 5 years since Maryland Deaf Culture Digital Library (DCDL) was signed into law! One of the requirements is that the coordinator be Deaf. Our Policy and Communications Manager, TraciAnn Hoglind, is on the DCDL Advisory Board Council. Do you need a one stop information center to access a comprehensive electronic collection of books and streaming videos, links to various Deaf culture related information, Deaf cultural programs, and other resources for research? DCDL has just that! I’d like to introduce you to the Coordinator of Maryland DCDL, Susan Cohen. The Maryland DCDL has a variety of resources available for you, including an e-book and streaming video collection in the Overdrive for your access. You can access the Overdrive using your library card to download resources relating to ASL, Deaf culture, Deaf literature, etc. The Maryland DCDL has a website temporarily hosted on the Montgomery County Public Library website. We will soon develop a new redesigned website! We are ecstatic to announce that we just signed a contract with Eyeth Studios, a Deaf woman owned company. We’re really excited to work with Eyeth Studios to build a navigable and Deaf friendly website!
