Digitization Services


The Library may be able to digitize materials that are of research value and if digitization would result in greater utility and accessibility of materials for researchers. We will consider requests provided:

  • there are no digital versions currently available (i.e. the item is not available for purchase in any digital format);
  • there are no physical protections or limits inhibiting reproduction or reformatting; and
  • digitization may be performed in accordance with copyright law or permission to digitize is obtained.

Formats handled:

  • VHS
  • Audiocassette
  • LP (vinyl records)
  • Flatbed scanning (up to 13" by 19" size)
  • Negatives
  • Slides


Requests will be fulfilled in 10 working days; rush requests may be fulfilled if at all possible.
