The University Library offers a range of digitization services available to faculty, staff, students, and independent researchers. The Library can digitize a wide range of print and audio-visual materials from Special Collections & Archives for digital preservation, classroom, and research needs. We will digitize for patrons depending upon the condition, type of material and volume, with further use in mind, on a case-by-case basis.
The Library can digitize single sheet items, bound volumes, slides, and cassette tapes. The maximum size for print items is A1 paper size (23-3/8” x 33-1/8”, 594mm x 841mm).
Many digitized items from our collections are also added to the Digital Archive (dspace.wlu.edu).
- Cassette player with audio interface
- Microcassette player
- Nikon D750, tripod, and 32×32 light-box
*Note: The Global Discovery Lab can also digitize audio and video materials for classroom use. If you need analog AV materials that are not housed in Special Collections & Archives reformatted, please put in a work order with GDL (my.wlu.edu/global-discovery-laboratories)
