Digitization CKG membership is open to all levels of staff interested in and responsible for technologies, equipment, workflows and digitization standards for materials of all formats held by the UC Libraries.

To participate in the Digital Humanities CKG, please contact its chair, Barbara Hui, CDL, Barbara.Hui@ucop.edu

To participate in the Digitization CKG, please contact its chair, Susan Chesley Perry, UCSC, chesley@ucsc.edu

As with all CKGs, membership is limited to staff who are directly engaged in and/or responsible for work that is under the purview of the CKG. Please obtain your supervisor's approval prior to participation.
