  • photo scanner
  • Reel to Reel audio
  • Vinyl records (sizes 33, 45, 78)

To get started, fill out our conversion appointment form or call the Technology Services librarian at 781-741-1405 ext 2623. Once you have an appointment, we will show you how to use the equipment in the library. Some equipment is available for checkout where you can do conversions at home! For a full list of what we have available to checkout of the library, visit our conversion borrowing page.

A usb flash drive may be required to store your newly created digital memories.

Be aware that many conversions are done in real time. For instance, a two hour VHS will take two hours to capture.
