Digitization

The South Dakota Board of Regents (SDBOR) has provided funding, system wide, for the purchase of equipment and software to be used for a digitization project. The equipment will be housed in the various regental libraries. We expect hardware to begin arriving soon, and plan to spend the next several months learning to use the equipment and software while we make a master plan for digitization. We already have several smaller projects in mind (some of the items in the campus archives, photos held by the museum, alumni information, etc.) We are soliciting your input as we begin planning for digitization. Do you have documents, photos, video’s etc. that should be preserved for scholars in the future? Does your department or organization have items pertaining to the history of the campus or the area that should be included in our “digital archives?” Items can be digitized and returned to you, or added to the campus archives.
