The Freedman Center for Digital Scholarship

Premium Services

Premium Services are digitization services rather than creative services. The Freedman Center only offers to perform the process of digitization of analog media. While creative services, such as making a DVD/CD menu or cropping and enchancing scanned material, are not availabile, Center staff are happy to assist in guiding you through the process of performing these processes yourself.

Copyright / Commericial Media Policy

The Freedman Center will not digitize material that is commerical-- this means either in full or small portions/excerpts. Only non-commercial media will be accepted for Premium Services.  If you are looking to digitize copyrighted material with permission from the copyright holder, please speak to a manager.


All Premium Services carry a $10.00 minimum. When dropping off media, we will ask that you fill out an invoice with detail about the project. A manager will be in touch within 1-2 business days to give you an exact price for the service.
