Patron Digitization Requests

Media Preservation offers its services to all Library departments, their staff, and patrons.  Patron requests are considered priority and project specifications are discussed with Library staff.  Patron requests will undergo condition assessment, treatment, digitization, and post-digitization workflows.

Library staff: If a patron has inquired regarding media digitization, contact Media Preservation staff.

IMPORTANT: Until further notice, as part of the Library’s COVID-19 response, faculty in need of access to media for courses should consult here.
