Special Collections: Digitized Books

Your electronic guide to special collections at Monmouth University Library.

Monmouth Univeisty Library Digitization Process

Monmouth University Library plans to digitize selections from its special collections through an agreement with the Internet Archive. However, manuscript leaves, photos, and small books are digitized in-house, using museum-quality flatbed book scanners. Only a few are available at present (see right), but look for more in the future. You can also visit digitized manuscript leaves under the Digitized Manuscript Leaves tab.
