Peltz Digitization Room

The Digitization Room allows you to turn your old media (slides, film, cassettes, VHS, etc.) into digital files. If you're looking to record or edit audio or video and NOT digitize old analog files, go to the Digital Media Lab page instead.

Beginning Feb. 1, appointments slots are available:

  • Tuesdays-Thursdays: 10:30-1:30, 1:30pm-4:30pm, 4:30pm-7:30pm
  • Fridays: 10:30-1:30, 1:30pm-4:30pm
  • Saturdays: 10:30am-1pm, 1pm-3:30pm

Appointments can be made up to 7 days in advance online or by phone at 847-272-2098. Beginning Feb. 1, same-day appointments can be made by calling or visiting us during our open hours; we do not take appointment requests via email or voicemail message. 

Limit 2 persons at the appointment. Limit 1 appointment per day, limit 2 advance appointments per week. Same-day appointments do not count against your advance appointments.
