The Digital Initiatives (DI) Unit is a key part of UBC Library’s effort to adapt to the evolving needs of faculty and students, and to support teaching, research and learning at UBC. Its goal is to create sustainable, world-class programs and processes to make the collections and research at UBC available to the world.
The Digital Initiatives team is frequently fascinated and excited by the vast amount of primary-source material that it encounters in its digitization work. Whether a document of historic significance, a beautiful illustration or even a particularly fine typeface, DI is often amazed by the materials they’re working to share with audiences at UBC and beyond.
Make sure to check out the Digitizers’ Blog to find some of the favourites, hand-picked by DI staff from existing and upcoming collections. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
