In 2016, after a year of already increasing our local digitization efforts, we produced over 230,000 images. In 2018, with increased digitization as part of the Library’s strategic plan, we produced over 1.2 million images.  The impact of this, not just on Imaging Services, the department that does the imaging, but on the rest off Library IT, and the libraries at large. Moving that many files around takes time, attention, systems that can handle the throughput, and management from creation to preservation.  We will talk about how we increased imaging, what we did to manage it, and what we plan to do to continue to increase and expand.
