The Digital Library Program at Loyola Marymount University is a comprehensive digital library that explores and presents digital objects from all facets of the library collections. The DLP helps to create an enhanced learning and research environment for all within the Loyola Marymount University community by creating persistent digital objects that are of high quality and meet or exceed currently accepted technological standards. It supports the university's mission by fostering access to research and knowledge materials. Additionally, the program fosters a collaborative environment that supports the educational, instructional and cultural needs of the community by partnering with other institutions and joining projects that extend the digital reach of the library.There are currently two facets of the Digital Library Program: the Digital Collections and the Digital Commons at Loyola Marymount University and Loyola Law School Scholarship Repository.The Digital Collections showcase materials from the department of Archives and Special Collections. Digitization is a value-added way of making library collections and materials available to anyone with an internet connection, around the world, around the clock.
