Special Collections and Univesity Archives actively contribute to regional and national efforts to establish digital collections. The department works collaboratively with other library units to develop local guidelines in conformance with standards and best practices for library digitization projects. Collections include the Long Island Books Collection, the Long Island Historic Postcard Collection, New York State maps, video and audio of campus events, and faculty scholarship.
In 2003, in collaboration with the Long Island Library Resources Council (LILRC), a digitization laboratory was established at Stony Brook University Libraries. Faculty from Special Collections and University Archives were part of a team that created standards and guidelines to facilitate digitization projects and establish a regional digitization program.
Electronic documents have been contributed
to DSpace, the official digital repository of the State University of New
York. Publications include the student newspaper The Stony Brook Statesman;
technical reports published by the College of Engineering and
Applied Sciences; and documents produced by the Office of the President.
