On Tuesday, Sept. 8, the University of Maryland will launch a new university calendar that will streamline and replace the FYI and Free Stuff @ UMD calendars. Beginning Sept. 8, you will be able to submit your events to the new campus calendar for review and approval, much like the current process for FYI and Free Stuff @ UMD. On Sept. 8, if you visit this website, you will automatically be redirected to the new calendar. In addition, a new weekly email called UMD This Week will launch on Sept. 8, replacing the daily FYI email. UMD This Week will be delivered at the beginning of every week and will highlight top upcoming events. The email will include details on how to access the new calendar and how to submit events for approval. Questions? Email UMDevents@umd.edu.

From the Stacks to the Future of Research: Building a Scalable, Sustainable Digitization Program at the University of Maryland
In February 2012, as the new manager of DCMR, Robin Pike was tasked with revamping the
digitization center, increasing production, expanding services throughout the Libraries,
and expanding services to include audio and video digitization, in addition to managing
digitization projects. After consulting with stakeholders throughout the Libraries, just
over one year later, they have expanded our staff, acquired new equipment, are in a new
facility, and are testing production-level workflows and standards. Our digitization center
is modeled on other, larger digitization centers, but scaled to fit the Libraries' estimated,
near-future needs. This talk explores the digitization program at the University of Maryland Libraries.
