Community Digitization Day

To register in advance call 520-626-8332.

Bring your family’s materials related to Tucson and the surrounding borderlands areas from 1900-1970, and we will scan them for you. Each participant will retain their originals and receive a copy of their digitized materials on a USB drive. Printed materials such as letters, certificates, brochures from clubs and organizations, and church programs are types of materials rich in historical information. Photographs are also valuable pieces of historical record. Each participant can bring up to 10 items, with a maximum size of 14 x 16 Inches.

Jae Gutierrez of the Center for Creative Photography will offer a workshop on how to preserve photographs. You will receive samples of preservation materials and directions on how to properly care for historical artifacts.

You can also contribute to the public record of our community by giving University Libraries permission to share the scans of your original materials in an online archive.

This event is free and open to the public.

Supported by the Southwestern Foundation.
