Do you have books, photos, or other media that you’d like to digitize for use in your teaching or research? Tisch can help! We offer both scanning services and options for do-it-yourself scanning. 

Need a book from our collection, or some of your own material, digitized? 

Tisch has scanning services available for out-of-copyright books (as a general rule, material published before 1925), or for scholarly material that you hold copyright to and can grant permission to make a copy of openly available. Get in touch with us to talk about the details of your project and how we can support it. 

Because our goal is to increase open access to scholarship, we can only offer digitization for material that can be made available through the Tufts Digital Library or the Internet Archive once scanned. 

For questions about copyright and what can be made openly available, visit our copyright research guide or ask us

Want to digitize your own material? 

Visit our Digital Design Studio. Their Digitization Station has an Epson scanner, Sony Digital 8 videocassette recorder, Canopus digital video converter, VHS player, cassette player, and vinyl record player, plus software for editing digital files. 

Need just a quick scan of something? 

Use one of our self-service flatbed scanning stations located on each floor of library
