Digital Project Planning: The IU Libraries' Digital Collections Services department fosters and supports the development of digital projects for Indiana University (IU) librarians, faculty, students, and staff, and collaborates with internal and external units and organizations on digital scholarship initiatives. We provide digital library services including workflows and tools for the creation, curation, and publication of digital content. We also offer consultation across all dimensions involved in planning a digital project: digitization, metadata, text encoding, data curation, software development, project management and grant planning. In addition to consultations, we organize training and outreach opportunities as part of the IU Libraries’ Scholars' Commons.
Digitization and Conversion: The IU Libraries' Digital Collections Services department supports the Scholars' Commons Digitization Lab, a high-end multimedia, multidisciplinary lab that is dedicated to the digital conversion of materials, and the management and migration of born-digital objects in support of research needs and interests of Indiana University Bloomington's faculty and graduate students. We are happy to consult on all aspects pertaining to your digitization project, including appropriate procedures for handling, preservation recommendations for the physical items, and advice/training on appropriate hardware, software, and procedures for digital conversion and analysis.
