The Waterloo Digital Library (WDL) runs on Islandora and is maintained by members of the University of Waterloo Library's Digital Initiatives and Special Collections & Archives departments. The WDL team is indebted to members of the Islandora community for their advice and willingness to share their experience.

Inspiration for the collection carousel on the WDL home page was drawn from the Cambridge Digital Library, and the collage-based carousel banners were designed by Alice Zhao and Katie Turriff, former University of Waterloo co-operative education students.


Digital surrogates have been created using Epson Expression 11000XL, Epson Perfection V850 PRO and Epson Perfection V750 PRO scanners running and SilverFast or Epson Scan software. The bulk of the digitization work has been completed by SCA staff and student interns without whom the WDL would not be possible and we thank them for their scanning service.
