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 more. Stop by the Central Library every Tuesday or Thursday for a tutorial on how to use the library's Personal Archiving Lab, then make an appointment for your personal archiving project.
Call 266-6350 for more information or to make an appointment. The Personal Archiving Lab supports the following formats: VHS and VHS-C tapes, DVDs (not BluRay), audio cassettes, MiniDV and Hi-8 tapes, photographs (including negatives and slides), and other paper-based documents.
The Personal Archiving Lab is funded by a gift from Marvin J. Levy.
