Future Plans

The Digital Services and Development Unit will be accommodating the University Library's goal of accessibility by scaling up its digitization and access program over the next several years. To accomplish this goal we plan to digitize unique collections and build model access and delivery systems. The DSD has completed the exploratory analysis of these collections by digitizing samples, and has developed innovative approaches to making materials accessible through the Internet. Below we identify the selected collection as well as the types of technology that will be developed and made accessible as our efforts progress toward the future.
