Production of New Digital Images

University of Delaware faculty members may request the production of up to 50 new digital images per semester. Unused image requests may not be transferred to another individual or another year. However, staff time permitting, the Visual Resources Center will attempt to fulfill additional image requests. The Visual Resources Center no longer makes 35 mm slides.

Descriptive metadata (basic identifying information, such as artist, title, date, and location) in English must be included with all orders, including those taken from unlabeled personal slides or photographs.

Please allow at least 2 weeks for an order of up to 50 new images. In an emergency, up to 10 images may be ordered with 48 hours notice.

University of Delaware graduate students may use Visual Resources Center equipment to produce their own images during our normal hours of operation. For after-hours scanning, the Student Multimedia Design Center in Morris Library has scanners available for student use.

All new images produced by Visual Resources Center staff become the property of the Visual Resources Center, and are made available to the University of Delaware community through Artstor's JSTOR Forum.

All new images produced by the Visual Resources Center are intended solely for teaching and research purposes at the University of Delaware, and may not be reproduced or published in any form. For more information on copyright and the use of images from the Visual Resources Center, see our Copyright page.

DIY Digitization

​For those wishing to make their own images, the Visual Resources Center has hardware and software available to assist members of the University of Delaware community with their digital projects. Our staff is here to help you get started, answer your questions, and offer additional guidance.

A few basic concepts and frequently asked questions about digital imaging are discussed on our Tips for Digitization page.​
