Digitization Services


The University Library offers a range of digitization services available to faculty, staff, students, and independent researchers. The Library can digitize a wide range of print and audio-visual materials from Special Collections & Archives for digital preservation, classroom, and research needs.

The Library can digitize single sheet items, bound volumes, slides, and cassette tapes. The maximum size for print items is A1 paper size (23-3/8” x 33-1/8”, 594mm x 841mm).

Many digitized items from our collections are also added to the Digital Archive (dspace.wlu.edu).




  • Cassette player with audio interface
  • Reel to Reel player


  • Nikon D750, tripod, and 32×32 light-box

*Note: The Global Discovery Lab can also digitize audio and video materials for classroom use. If you need analog AV materials that are not housed in Special Collections & Archives reformatted, please put in a work order with GDL (my.wlu.edu/global-discovery-laboratories)
