See how a digital book is made - California Digital Library

Millions of books from the UC Libraries have been digitized, but how? Go behind the scenes to learn about the UC Libraries’ digitization process and see several ways you can use these newly digital books. “The Story of the Digital Book” explains how UC’s books make their way from the shelf to the screen, the possibilities they bring to users, and how they’re preserved for the long term.

The video was produced by CDL Mass Digitization Project Specialist Jason Colman and Amy Rogers, a San José State University School of Library Information Science (SLIS) student, for the CDL Mass Digitization group. Amy interned at CDL this summer and we are very grateful for her help.

The video is also available with captioning for the hearing impaired.
