For Immediate release
NORTHEAST DOCUMENT CONSERVATION CENTER (NEDCC) ANNOUNCES NEW DIGITAL SERVICES
The Northeast Document Conservation Center now brings its preservation expertise to performing high-quality digitization of historic photographs and visual materials for libraries, archives, historical organizations, museums, and other cultural institutions. These services have been developed in response to requests from institutions that do not have digital experts on staff and that are reluctant to leave valuable materials at commercial facilities.
NEDCC digitizes from original sources to produce customized digital files in TIFF or JPEG formats on DVDs or other media. Its technical photographers print long-lasting images from an inkjet printer that employs archival inks on acid-free paper in a variety of finishes.
NEDCC CAN DIGITIZE:
- Photographic prints
- Film negatives
- Lantern slides
- Glass-plate negatives
- Unusual formats
- Illustrations in bound volumes
- Film slides
- Works of art on paper
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF NEDCC'S ONE-STOP SHOPPING:
NEDCC's Paper and Book Conservators are available to perform conservation treatment or traditional reformatting of original materials that are being digitized.
NEDCC's highly trained staff has long experience in the careful handling of fragile historic materials; its facility provides sophisticated security and climate controls.
NEDCC is a national leader in digital training and offers advice on building sustainable digital collections.
