Hi all-- I've been talking with Photo & Graphics Section in Kane Hall to
figure out how to offer digital copies for a fee of paper maps that we
don't let out of the Map Collection because of age or condition. Best we
can do so far is taking a photograph (4"x5" negative), then scanning the
negative. It works.
But, is there a large format scanner on campus that we could use for this
purpose? Often, these folks are off-campus users so there has to be
a structure in place for cash/check payments, not just budget #'s.
Thanks. I just want to be sure I'm not missing a resource on campus.
