Update: Imaging Orders & Microfilm Digitization

  • Thank you for your patience during our move. We are now able to accept new imaging orders. As the transition from the old building to the new one continues, some materials are currently unavailable as they are being moved. Therefore, some of our collections will not be available for us to digitize until further notice. Please email us at to see if your order can be fulfilled at this time.

What Is Included:

  • The Digital Work Group reproduces images as they appear in the original negatives or prints. Digital imaging orders include scanning, straightening & cropping to a small border around the outer edge of the item. Cropping to focus on image details is not included.
  • Print orders include printing the desired image on a standard size of archival paper (no trimming of prints is included).
  • Microfilm digitization orders include each frame of microfilm in digital format on a flash drive, numbered sequentially per roll. Each flash drive will have one roll of images, unless the roll is very full or higher-resolution/TIFs are requested. If multiple flash drives are needed to fulfill an order, additional media fees will be charged.
  • A single page = one scan/print. Multiple pages will incur additional imaging/printing fees.
  • Special handling and rushes will incur additional fees as per the above chart. If we determine that a request requires additional fees, we will discuss during the quote process.
  • Items are printed on two types of paper depending on patron's need or request.
