To support digital initiatives and scholarship at Georgetown University, the Digital Services Lab makes use of a variety of hardware to digitize books, photographs, negatives, original artwork, manuscripts, and oversized items. 

Georgetown University Library has an overhead scanner to support digitization for personal use, and the Gelardin New Media Center has equipment for digitizing some video and audio materials for individual purposes.

Digitization Equipment

 This overhead scanner captures images at up to 600 DPI. It is designed for use with archival and special collections, including bound and flat materials. The scanner has been used for numerous digital projects at Georgetown University, ranging from contemporary artwork to 16th century rare books.
