Born-digital and digitized material

U-M Box is a preferred service when transferring digital files due to its ability to handle large files and media-rich content. Importantly, U-M Box is an authorized University service for records and information containing sensitive data. In some cases, it may be necessary to make a transfer of digital records via storage device delivery (e.g., hard drive).

When preparing digital records for transfer, contact the Bentley at to request that a dropbox be set up for you.
