We digitize printed textual materials (bound or looseleaf), manuscripts, photographs, maps, flat artwork, slides and negatives from Emory's collections. Our team provides digital reproduction services for library patrons, including MARBL patrons (place requests here), and also supports larger scale projects approved by the Digitization Selection Committee. We also support librarians, archivists, curators and scholars on smaller projects.
We typically produce archival quality TIFF images for long term preservation in Emory's digital repository, as well as use copies in JPG or JP2 format for distribution and use purposes. Printed text materials are for the most part run through an optical character recognition (OCR) process, and we also frequently create output to define the structure (METS) and layout (ALTO) of printed text.
