Digital Initiatives

What We Do

The mission of the UW Libraries’ Digital Collections Office is to help foster, create, and preserve open data, research, and scholarship at the University of Wyoming. The Digital Collections Office has two primary responsibilities. The first is collection building and digitization, and the second is supporting UW’s scholarly output. Faculty and staff are happy to consult and work with the University of Wyoming community on a variety of projects.

Digital Collections operates and maintains the various Libraries digital repositories, including our digital collections, research data, and scholarly outputs. They also work to preserve and convert analog content of all kinds to digital formats. The ultimate goal of these efforts are the open and broad dissemination of information online. Learn more at the Digital Collections page.

The second area of emphasis is supporting scholarly output, mainly through our work with the Digital Scholarship Center. A new service operating within the Libraries, the DSC provides technology and training for work on digital projects by UWyo community members. Learn more at the Digital Scholarship Center page.
