Digitization & Digital Preservation at VIU Library

VIU Library is a partner in Digital BC and may provide services to other participants in the initiative through a network of arrangements. VIU Library also seeks to coordinate with and may form agreements with regional or aligned organizations for digitization and digital preservation services where there is mutual interest and good alignment with Library strategic objectives and University goals.

Such services may include those described below. While some costs may be relatively easy to assess, other costs of digitization and preservation vary depending on specific circumstances and outcomes of a project.
