Digitization & Reproduction

Flexible options for every challenge

Digitization is a practical option in the preservation toolkit. Sometimes, a book is too fragile to be handled by visitors to a library. An institution may want to widen access to its collections by sharing them online. A print could be too sensitive to be hung in a room with sunlight. Multiple family members might want copies of a photograph.

Whatever the reason, we can help.

We have experience with a range of digitization and reproduction projects with a variety of goals. We are uniquely positioned to integrate conservation and digitization services, but some clients opt for digizitization alone.

Services include:

  • facsimile prints and books
  • image enhancement and digital restoration
  • key-wording and OCR (optical character recognition) services
  • management of large-scale digitization projects
  • digital preservation assessments
