Digital Scholarship at UCSC Libraries


The DSC and the DSI have equipment to digitize documents, photos, cassette 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 to set up an appointment.
