Propose a Digital Collection

If you are interested in having your materials — whether they’ve been digitized already or not — hosted by us in a digital collection, this is the place to start.  

Building a new digital collection provides preservation and access, and ensures the availability of your materials for teaching, learning, research, and scholarship.

We support projects that originate from our print and archival collections, as well as University of Michigan departmental and off-campus collections. 

Visit how we support digital scholarship to learn about the spectrum of our support services and request an initial consultation.
