Digital Imaging in the Library
Presenters: Tim Pinault, Jenna Jorganson, Christine Huhn

The objective of the digital imaging team is to provide expanded access to the library’s collections via digital surrogates. The digital objects are then ingested in a variety of digital repositories including the California Digital Library, Hathitrust and OskiCat: UC Berkeley’s library catalog.

The digital imaging team consists of four full-time staff and five student assistants. A combination of high-resolution cameras and scanners are used to digitize a wide variety of rare books, photographs and manuscript collections. In 2015 the library implemented a new public service imaging program with the Bancroft Library. Made up of entirely patron requests, this program resulted in more than 17 thousand images in its first year.
