Digitization Days

Your history matters, and we are here to help you preserve it! Our Digitization Days allow for those interested to gain in-person experience with digitizing family documents. We are here to teach how to digitally preserve old photos, documents, and other items using our skills and special equipment. During these events, our staff will be on hand to lend their archiving expertise and help digitize your precious heirlooms. See our FAQs below for more information.


The Chapman Center is also happy to do individual consultations. To set up a workshop, email us or call us at (785) 532-0380.
