Imaging Services Order Process

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 ask@tsla.libanswers.com to see if your order can be fulfilled at this time.


To inquire about an order, please follow these instructions: 

  • Send a question to ask@tsla.libanswers.com or fill out this form. Staff will contact you within 2 business days to start the quote process. Include your name and email address so staff can reply.
