Digital Resources & Imaging Services is a new department dedicated to the creation of digital content from the Trinity College Library Dublin's extensive collections of Early Printed Books and Manuscripts. While the primary focus of the activity centers on general digitization of the libraries special collections, the department also provides on demand digitization services for publication and education.
Beginning this fall the Digital Resources & Imaging Services department will start working on an exciting new project to develop the digital library collections repository and its online interface. This new repository will hold digitized versions of many of the libraries historic printed volumes and rare manuscripts. The online interface offered by this new technology will allow for the very first time truly open access to these wonderful pieces of history providing students of all ages, teachers, scholars, and even general readers opportunity to utilize these remarkable materials from anywhere in Ireland or even the world.
In the coming months as we dive into the development of this new digital resource we will begin to engage a variety of communities to help support the design of the user interface and research toolsets. We welcome all comments and suggestions at email@example.com and look forward to a successful launch in the spring of 2010
