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.
