Digitization is the process of converting information into a digital format that makes it easier to preserve, access, and share. For example, a typical video or document may only be accessible to people who physically visit the LRC, but if the document or video is digitized, it can be made available to patrons worldwide.
The LRC provides a wide array of digitization services in the Digitization Room to MFLL faculty for self use or by our staff on a time-available basis. Core services include scanning of paper and negative-based materials into electronic text or digital images; conversion of analog audio and videotapes; encoding/transcoding of audio and video to streaming media formats; and CD/DVD duplication.
Because the equipment is very popular, patrons are limited to 2 hours of use at one time. We ask that you participate in a training session to become familiar with the equipment if you are a beginner.
