Do you have a VHS tape or CD that you would like to convert into a more usable form? The Anderson Academic Commons has its own full-service digitization lab that can help.

Digital Conversion Services can convert a variety of analog or digital media into either digital or electronic formats. The trained media technicians in Digital Conversion Services can either directly convert your media or edit and enhance it. Check out the Digital Conversion Services homepage for details on the many types of media that can be converted.

Making a request to have your media converted is easy. Simply send an email to library-av@du.edu, with the details of your project, including the type of media you would like to convert, the format that you would like to convert it into, and details on how and when you would like the final product to be delivered. Requests should be submitted with at least 72 hours notice.

Conversion projects are, of course, subject to copyright laws. You will need to complete the Copyright Acknowledgement Statement before the project can be completed. While you may wish to review the general pricing list, Digital Conversion Services recommends that you schedule a consultation to review the specific pricing and requirements for your unique project.

Converting your media to newer forms will allow you to preserve and access your content for years to come…and it may just give you the final reason that you need to get rid of your old VCR.
