Remember that digitization occurs in real time. This means that if you bring a two-hour-long home movie to digitize, then the actual time for just the digitization itself will take two hours. You are required to stay to monitor the full digitization process of your materials. We offer digital preservation classes and training to the public. Check out the Visual Guide (PDF) for an introduction. To set up an appointment to use the Memory Lab, fill out a reservation form.
