Teaching Digitization Service

In addition to the grants program, Cornell University Library supports the digitization of various material types to support instruction at the University. This service can include metadata creation and online delivery of images and other visual resources. This is a free service to University instructors, and aims to support the teaching mission.

Instructors wishing to digitize their material can fill out the online request form. When necessary, please flag all images throughout books using the Instructor Slips (.doc).

Turnaround times

The rough turnaround time for images is:

  • 1-100 images: within 2 weeks
  • 101-500 images: 3-5 weeks
  • 500+ images: within 3 months

Rush orders of less than 5 images can be processed by the end of the following business day and delivered on physical media or by FTP.

Material should be delivered to Olin Library, or Library staff can retrieve material from instructors upon request. For more information, please contact us at dcaps@cornell.edu.
