“By grouping multidisciplinary and multigenerational scholars and students together, our Collaboratory project has led us to think about how digital publications can be used to create entry-points, supplements, and bridges to new audiences and users.”

—Vincent Longo, doctoral candidate, Department of Film, Television, and Media
