Mount Mary University Digital Collections

About the CLIR Grant Project

In 2021, Mount Mary University was awarded a substantial grant from the Council on Library & Information Resources (CLIR) to fund 2 years of Fashion Archive digitization efforts. The CLIR grant team began adding digitized garments that fall using high-quality 360° image and zooming technology. Whenever possible, the entirety of Fashion Archive holdings for a given designer or personality have been photographed.
This database is a work in progress, as the team continually strives to make the content as accessible and functional as possible. At times, the database may be under maintenance for short periods, and therefore unavailable. If so, please check back!
