Personal Archiving Lab Drop-In Tutorial

Personal Archiving Lab Drop-In Tutorial

Central Library
03/21/2017
4:30 pm - 6:30 pm

The Personal Archiving Lab at Central Library is a collection of equipment that can be used to digitize at-risk analog materials, like home movies, video tapes, audio cassettes, photographs, and other paper-based documents.

Stop by the Local History Room, Central Library, every Tuesday for a tutorial on how to use the library's Personal Archiving Lab. You will then need to make a follow-up appointment to begin converting your materials - call 266-6350 or speak with the Reference Desk.

The Library’s Personal Archiving Lab supports the following formats:

- VHS tapes
- VHS-C tapes
- DVDs (not BlueRay)
- Audio cassettes
- MiniDV tapes
- Hi-8 tapes
- Photographs / negatives / slides
- Paper-based documents

Be advised that when transferring from analog to digital formats, such as VHS, Hi-8, or audio cassette, your media will be captured in real time.

Patrons who use the Lab must bring some form of external storage — a portable hard drive, or a thumb drive — on which digital files can be stored.

The Personal Archiving Lab is funded by a gift from Marvin J. Levy.

Personal Archiving Lab Drop-In Tutorial

Personal Archiving Lab Drop-In Tutorial

Central Library
03/28/2017
4:30 pm - 6:30 pm

The Personal Archiving Lab at Central Library is a collection of equipment that can be used to digitize at-risk analog materials, like home movies, video tapes, audio cassettes, photographs, and other paper-based documents.

Stop by the Local History Room, Central Library, every Tuesday for a tutorial on how to use the library's Personal Archiving Lab. You will then need to make a follow-up appointment to begin converting your materials - call 266-6350 or speak with the Reference Desk.

The Library’s Personal Archiving Lab supports the following formats:

- VHS tapes
- VHS-C tapes
- DVDs (not BlueRay)
- Audio cassettes
- MiniDV tapes
- Hi-8 tapes
- Photographs / negatives / slides
- Paper-based documents

Be advised that when transferring from analog to digital formats, such as VHS, Hi-8, or audio cassette, your media will be captured in real time.

Patrons who use the Lab must bring some form of external storage — a portable hard drive, or a thumb drive — on which digital files can be stored.

The Personal Archiving Lab is funded by a gift from Marvin J. Levy.
