Digital Archiving Lab
The Digital Archiving Lab is part of Simpson Library’s Special Collections and University Archives department. The Lab is located in room 322 on the third floor of the Hurley Convergence Center (HCC) on the UMW campus, and is open by appointment. You may contact the Lab at 540-654-5998.
The mission of the Digital Archiving Lab is to convert Simpson Library’s rare and unique archival materials to digital formats. Using specialized equipment and specifications to properly handle materials, we digitize rare books, manuscripts, photographs, scrapbooks, and more. These digital objects are used to support the research and teaching goals of the UMW community, and can be accessed on many platforms among the Library’s online digital collections. Materials may be digitized on demand, in accordance with the Library’s policies. Visit our scanning services page for more information.
