Project Planning Resources
for Library Faculty and Staff

Project Considerations

A number of variables impact the actual time it takes to complete a project; on average:

  • One third of the effort is project planning, preservation preparation, management, and oversight
  • One third of the effort is metadata development which includes updating catalog records or archival description
  • One third of the effort is the actual digitization

How to Start a New Project


To address digitization for patron requests, please see the Orders page at our Special and Area Studies Collections department website.

For individual items, or AV formats, or other questions, contact Laura Perry.
