Digitizing Materials

We’re happy to announce that we just completed digitizing one book of negatives!  Most of these photos are of VC activities and community life in the 1980s, and we’re excited to have them digitally accessible!  Digitizing negatives isn’t simple work… digitizing two strips of 35 mm negatives takes about 20-30 minutes, not to mention, each strip needs to be cleaned and dusted lightly before its placed inside the scanner.

It took us about 4 months to scan over 4,700 negatives– and again, that’s just one binder.  We have so many more of these binders left to finish.  We couldn’t do it without help, of course.  Thank you to our summer interns for contributing to this ongoing project!
