Digital Collections Department
Digital Collections Department advances the University's teaching and
research mission by providing digitization services and support to Northwestern faculty and
graduate students. We partner with other Library and University departments to provide these
services and to undertake special digitization projects that bring Northwestern's unique and
rare collections to researchers around the world. While digital content production is at the heart
of the Digital Collections Department, we are also firmly committed to instruction, training and
user support.
Within the Marjorie I. Mitchell Digital Media Center, Digital Collections-2E Production provides
digitization services, including audio and video streaming, slide scanning, audio production and
special projects, for Northwestern faculty, staff and graduate students. In addition, the Kirtas
scanning initiative digitizes out-of-copyright books from the Library's collections, including brittle
books, ensuring broad access to their contents.
The Digital Collections-2E Digital Media Lab provides production equipment and instruction on
various hardware and software applications. Though it is primarily a Mac lab, the Library's only
public optical character recognition text scanner (running on a Windows PC) is also available
here. The most common training and production requests in the lab are for video editing, audio
editing, DVD burning, text scanning and slide scanning. Instruction is available to faculty, staff
and graduate students who wish to explore new modes of research and presentation.
Digital Collections Department staff also works with the Digital Library Committee to identify
and manage digital library projects. Eighteen digital library projects are currently available
through the Digitized Collections page.
