This article provides information on the location, use and cost of the Large Format Scanning Service.

The Large Format Scanning Service is based in the Map Library on the 1st floor of the University Library and enables you to obtain professional quality scans of original material.

Originals will usually be scanned at 300 dpi in 24-bit colour and saved as a JPEG. Scans can be made at other resolutions and saved in other formats, including TIFF.

The service is fully managed by Library staff, so just bring your material to be scanned and a USB flash memory on which to save the file.
