The Digital Production Group (DPG) produces high quality digital images of items in Stanford University Libraries' various collections for faculty, staff, and curatorial needs. We manage and operate six digitization labs staffed by highly skilled professional imaging specialists and student assistants. Our labs are capable of converting a wide variety of traditional library materials to digital formats, including printed books, journals, fine art, photographs, maps, manuscripts, and more.
