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. 

How to get started

Contact digital-collections@umich.edu for an overview of the service and our workflows. We can also put you in touch with specialists to answer specific questions as needed. 

As part of the process, we will ask you to complete a Digital Project Proposal. You can make a copy and start your proposal at any time.
