If you have an idea for a project that involves digitization of materials for inclusion in the Libraries' permanent digital collections, please complete and submit this form.

The Boston College Libraries’ digitization program will support teaching, learning and research at Boston College and worldwide. The program will expose the strengths of the Libraries’ rare or unique special collections. As much as possible, it will make the collections openly accessible to a wide audience, wherever located, in order to provide materials that can engender new scholarship. The digitization program will preserve information in fragile physical form. It will make possible collaborative development of special collections with other institutions. The digitization program will support strategic initiatives and relationships within Boston College and with other institutions.

In addition to the information you provide in the form, other decision-making factors include the condition of the item to be digitized, copyright considerations and any special technical requirements that will affect the cost of the project.
