Scholars' Commons Digitization Lab Equipment

Back to Digitization Services

The Scholars' Commons Digitization Lab is a high-end multimedia, multidisciplinary lab dedicated to the digital conversion of materials, and the management and migration of born-digital objects in support of research needs and interests of Indiana University Bloomington's faculty and graduate students.

This lab is comprised of two adjoining spaces: the open Digitization Lab and the Secure Digital Analysis room. The open Lab provides large format flatbed, high speed, transparency-capable, and sheet-fed scanners for textual documents (bound, loose-leaf, manuscript, etc.), photographs, negatives, and small to medium three-dimensional objects. The Secure Digital Analysis room is primarily for the digitization and analysis of audio and video.

If you think the IU Libraries would be interested in partnering with your digitization project, or if you are interested in learning more about our digitization services, please contact Kara Alexander, Digital Media Specialist, Digital Collections Services.
