About the Washington University Digital Gateway
The Washington University Digital Gateway serves two primary purposes:
This web site is maintained by Digital Library Services (DLS), a unit of the Washington University Libraries created in 2006 to serve the entire Washington University community in these capacities, in collaboration with key units from within the Library and across the University, including the Digital Library Team (DLT), The Digital Implementation Group (DIG), Arts & Sciences Computing and the Humanities Digital Workshop.
Most digital projects from the collections page of this site currently are links to separate sites. Increasingly, digital projects listed on this site will be part of digital library, which represents an architecture currently in development, dedicated to the production, duration and delivery of digital resources. Resources in the digital library meet minimum requirements for file formats and metadata, and will be aggregated where possible to facilitate cross-database searching.
Digital Library Services is located in A32 of the John M. Olin Library, and is regularly open 8:30-5:00. We are in the process of articulating the different levels of support we can provide to different kinds of projects. Details on these levels of support will be available on the support page. Digital Library Services is available for initial consultation on any project, and we encourage you to contact us with your questions.
