Digital Projects and Production Services
The Digital Projects and Production Services Department provides systems and services that support the digital mission of Perkins and Bostock Libraries. We collaborate widely to help Duke University realize its strategic goals and to establish Duke University Libraries as campus IT leaders. We also provide patron services in the area of digital reproduction, and leadership in the development of innovative technologies.
Our department combines the Digital Projects group, which consists of a team of web developers and a project coordinator, and the Digital Production Center, which performs high-quality digital captures of physical collections. Our staff members are skilled in the areas of application development, digital capture of physical materials and project coordination.
Our major areas of responsibility include:
- page design and branding for the Duke University Libraries website.
- development and maintenance of the Duke Digital Collections website. On this site, we publish digital captures of collections held by the libraries.
- digitization of collections held by the libraries and selected campus partners.
- support for the libraries' efforts in digital preservation.
- innovative approaches to the discovery and visualization of library resources.
The Digital Projects and Production Services manages a dynamic and varied project portfolio. Click here to learn about our active projects.

If you have questions about any of these projects contact Molly Bragg, Digital Projects Coordinator.
