Digitization

Digitization encompasses the full range of activities to review and convert the Library's materials in a variety of paper-based and media formats to more stable and useable forms. The Digitization Unit is responsible for planning and managing both inhouse and vendor activities that add content from the Library's general and special collections to the digital resources preserved and made available to users on the Library's web site.
