With the help of Nell Ruby, a long time Agnes faculty member, the student-led center championed and assisted in the use of the digital by faculty and students. In 2018, the Center received a makeover and its own dedicated space in the college’s library. Lisa Jones currently manages the day-to-day operations of the CDVL. She is assisted by Anastasia Owen and the host of The Digital Breakdown, Sye Williams.
