Our DYI Digitization Lab is available by appointment for converting analog media such as slides, 33/45 RPM records, audio cassettes, VHS tapes, and laser video discs to digital formats. Two flatbed scanners are available as well. We will provide consultation and instructional materials so that you can self-sufficiently convert analog media. This space is also available for viewing or listening to analog legacy media.
