High quality scanning of photos, slides, negative, and other items

If you want to see what is really on those old slides or negatives, but don't want to scan them (yet), you can use our Light Table (also known as a Light Box) - an ArtOGraph 930 Light Pad.

  • 30.5cm x 22.9cm (12" x 9") illuminated surface. 
  • While walk-ins can use the Light Pad, please phone or contact the library to book the room (room 2) to make sure it is there when you need it.
