The Digital Projects Office, a part of the Electronic Resources and Information Technologies (ERIT) Department, is responsible for coordinating digital preservation and access projects both within the library and for external keepers of unique historical material, including UNCG faculty and local cultural heritage organizations. Currently staffed by three full-time employees, three employees shared with other departments, and several student assistants, the Digital Projects Office handles a variety of projects, both large and small.
For a consultation, please email David Gwynn, Digital Projects Coordinator. More information on digitization services offered on campus for faculty can be found here.
