Digital Scholarship at UCSC Libraries
The DSC and the DSI have equipment to digitize documents, photos, cassette tapes, VHS tapes, or create 3D scans of objects. This equipment is available for self service use within our physical spaces. To get started, contact us for a consultation on equipment use and how to reserve the equipment for your needs.
Here you'll find a growing list of tutorials and recorded workshops around digitization. We recommend a consultation with our digitization experts before your first time with the equipment for dedicated projects or high resolution digitization. Contact us at email@example.com to set up an appointment.
The DSC offers a wide range of equipment for checkout to create digital assets as well as computers for creating your exhibit.
The land on which we gather is the unceded territory of the Awaswas-speaking Uypi Tribe. The Amah Mutsun Tribal Band, comprised of the descendants of indigenous people taken to missions Santa Cruz and San Juan Bautista during Spanish colonization of the Central Coast, is today working hard to restore traditional stewardship practices on these lands and heal from historical trauma.
The land acknowledgement used at UC Santa Cruz was developed in partnership with the Amah Mutsun Tribal Band Chairman and the Amah Mutsun Relearning Program at the UCSC Arboretum.
