Retro Tech: From the Analog Past to the Digital Future
Convert Your Analog Media to Digital
Got tapes you can’t play anymore? Slides stuffed in old shoe boxes? Precious photos slowly decaying? Has the digital revolution left your memories stranded in the past, trapped in outdated or unplayable formats?
The Library can help.
How it Works
At no-cost, one-and-a-half hour appointments led by trained volunteers, participants will learn how to digitize materials including slides, VHS, vinyl, Super 8s and 8 millimeter tapes, documents, and photographs.
- 35mm Slide Scanner
- 8mm and Super 8 converter

- Epson Document Scanner
- Epson Photo Scanner
- Video Cassette Recorder

How To Prepare
Prioritize which memories you'd like to preserve. Come prepared with your items and a USB storage device with sufficient space to save your digitizations, or an account with an online storage service (Dropbox, GoogleDrive, etc.).
Appointments will be available starting April 2019 in the King Library's California Room.
