Carolina Digital Repository
The Carolina Digital Library and Archives serves UNC Library staff, UNC faculty and other faculty affiliates,
as well as other organizations by way of formal partnerships. Many of our services can be provided at no
cost to you, but others require external support. Please contact us to discuss your ideas and needs. We
look forward to working with you!

DIGITIZATION
The CDLA's Digital Production Center maintains a wide range of equipment for the conversion of analog
paper and photographic media to digital form. In this facility, we produce more than 1.5 million image files
per year. We also provide knowledgeable referrals to other services for formats we do not have the ability
to convert (such as microfilm, audio, and video), and for collections of material that would benefit from
outsourcing of digitization.
DIGITAL PROJECT PLANNING AND MANAGEMENT
We offer a wide range of digital project planning and management services for placing library collections
online and facilitating UNC faculty's digital research. CDLA staff will work with you to refine your ideas,
explore technical and funding possibilities, and facilitate UNC Library collaboration on initiatives when
appropriate. We can consult on rights issues and technology selection, as well as the formal articulation of
functional requirements. For projects that are seeking grant funding, we can provide assistance with the
writing of a proposal, helping to ensure the proposal document has the best chance of funding success.
Once in-house, grant, or private support is obtained in support of a digital project, we can oversee or assist
with the management of the many tasks necessary to produce high-quality digital resources. We can
provide web and user experience design, workflow management, quality control, and general project
management services, including day to day oversight of work done in support of a particular digital
initiative.
DIGITAL COLLECTION DEVELOPMENT
CDLA staff use our expertise in digital data and online user experience to assist UNC affiliates with the
collecting of digital resources in support of your collection, research, or instruction goals. Our current focus
in this area is on the archiving of faculty research output into the Carolina Digital Repository.
CONSULTING
Even if the CDLA or the UNC Library isn't a partner on your digital initiative, we're happy to provide
consulting in our areas of expertise, to help you ensure your work is as productive as it can be. We're here
to provide feedback on your plans and documentation, point you to helpful resources, or simply bounce
ideas off of.
PROFESSIONAL TRAINING
The CDLA is committed to increasing knowledge of digital library practice within UNC and the profession as
a whole. We provide formal and informal support to those who aspire to work in this field, or who wish to
become more involved in digital library efforts. We maintain a close relationship with the UNC School of
Information and Library Science to help train the next generation of librarians, archivists, and information
professionals.
