The Digital Production Unit (DPU)

Course Reserves

The Digital Production Unit is a vital component of the Library's affordable learning initiatives. By digitizing and linking up thousands of course materials each semester, Digital Production provides 24/7 access to text and streaming media course materials via the Library's Course Reserve system. DPU also works in collaboration with eLearning to process media for streaming on faculty Blackboard pages.

Digital Production also processes faculty requests for books to be placed on physical reserve and makes them available for students to check-out.

Digitization & Digital Reproduction

Thanks to the efforts of Digital Production, the Library is able to share globally its collections of historical photographs, slides, negatives, text and multimedia materials by preparing them for inclusion on the Cleveland Memory Project website and on other related electronic resources.

Maintaining the Library's digital image archive and ensuring image quality and viability, DPU additionally supports a digital reproduction service for those images.
