We are a reliable and trustworthy digitizer of objects, providing the best quality and most sustainable digital surrogates possible at a reasonable cost. We also seek out digital material, either born or converted, which departments, labs and centers of the University wish to share with the world.
In order to fully utilize our digitizing capacity, we provide fee-based scanning services to the University community and researchers across the globe.
We do not provide book or article-level scanning for in-copyright materials. University of Minnesota Twin Cities (UMTC) faculty, staff and students interested in accessing these types of materials should refer to the Libraries' Get It or InfoNOW services.
To ensure high quality discovery and access to digital objects in our repositories, the Libraries has developed a number of web applications. Through a combination of open-source and commercial applications we are able to provide optimal access to the collections and scholarly works from across the University.
We continue to refine our discovery platforms, identifying opportunities to expand our holdings in order to provide for a better user experience.
DASH aims to bring together students, faculty, and staff from across disciplines and campuses, in order to promote innovative tools and methods for scholarly, pedagogical, and creative projects
