The Office of Library Technology of the Clemson University Libraries provides leadership in the creation, preservation, and promotion of digital content. We serve as a regional supplier of content to the South Carolina Digital Library with special emphasis on the Upcountry of South Carolina.
For detailed information on our workflow process and the guidelines we follow, visit our internal Digital Projects site. The equipment and software instructions written up for our scan technicians and best practices reference links can hopefully serve as a guide for those looking to get their institution’s digitization program started.
