The Personal Archiving Lab at the Central Library is a collection of equipment that can be used to digitize at-risk analog materials. The Lab supports the following
- VHS tapes
- VHS-C tapes
- DVDs (not BluRay)
- Audio cassettes
- MiniDV tapes
- Hi-8 tapes
- Photographs / negatives / slides
- Paper-based documents
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.
