How to scan photos and documents for our collection
Photos should be scanned at a minimum of 1200 DPI as either a jpeg or tiff document and put on a CD. Documents (not photographs) can be scanned at a lower DPI and also can be put on a CD or they can be copied on a copy machine.
Please include any information you have about the photos or documents. If there is writing on the backs of the photos please copy or scan the backs as well. If you use a service (such as a copy service) to do this you can send us your receipt for re-imbursement provided that the scans are high-resolution as instructed above and the subject matter is relevant.
