Digitize a Library Resource

Digitizing the Libraries' Unique Collections

The FIU Libraries contain a vast array of rare, unique, and out of print historically significant materials pertaining to Latin America, the Caribbean, Miami, and Florida. These collections are a valuable resource for students, faculty, and visiting scholars, but they are also a fragile and irreplaceable part of our history.

Why is digitization important?

  • Preservation - By digitizing materials, we can create a digital copy that can be used for research and teaching without risking damage to the original.
  • Accessibility - By making materials available online, we can reach a wider audience, including students, scholars, and the public who may not be able to visit our libraries in person.
  • Promote awareness and scholarship - By making materials available online, researchers can access them more easily and conduct research that would not be possible otherwise.
