Quick-Scan Station Added at Willennar Genealogy Center

One of the big things that is important to us at the Willennar Genealogy Center is preservation through digitization.

I’ve already written about digitization and Book the Digital Lab (if you missed it, you can read about it here), but we’ve just added another item that will aid the public with digitization: a Quick-Scan Station.

Quick Scan Station

This station, located in the Research Room, gives people an opportunity to scan just a few photographs or documents. It can also serve as a copy machine for someone who wants the information they’re copying in a digital format rather than as a piece of paper.

The Quick-Scan Station is intended for people scanning ten items or fewer. After scanning, you can either load the scans on a flash drive, or email them to yourself.

There are procedures, complete with computer screenshots, showing you how to scan items at the Quick-Scan Station. If you need additional guidance, you can also always ask one of the people who work here at the Willennar Genealogy Center to help!

If you have more than ten items to scan, or if you’re still unsure of how to scan, Book the Digital Lab is probably the best choice for you. You’ll get more time, be able to scan more items, and get one-on-one instruction from a Willennar Genealogy Center worker.

Come on in and check it out!


About Jenny

I am the Associate Director of Eckhart Public Library. My office is in the Administrative Annex, but I can often be found roaming the Eckhart Public Library Campus, performing acts of librarianship in every department! I love to read and learn about history. I'm also a huge fan of movies, TV and pop culture in general, and I love to read books of all types. Currently, I'm working my way around the romance section, with some historical fiction and graphic novels thrown in for variety! But you never know what I'm going to pick up next.
