How quickly can my digitization be done?

Our standard turnaround time for digitization is three to five working days depending on the size and scope of your project. However, we will accommodate quick turnaround requests when possible. Let us know your deadline. If there’s a way, we’ll meet it.

How much does it cost?

Faculty can have instructional support materials digitized at DMS at no cost. These materials must be used in courses in which UT students are enrolled and are receiving credit toward a degree. Faculty must provide the course name and number.

Services for research, promotion, or other non-curricular uses by faculty, staff, or departments are available for a minimal fee depending on the parameters of the request.

Once my video is digitized, how do I access it?

DMS provides you with a link or URL to your streaming audio and video. This link can be added to your Online@UT course site or to your personal web page to make the digital material accessible to your classes.

How do I contact you?

Digital Media Services is located at 170 Hodges Library on the 1st Floor near the auditorium.

What if I don’t hold the copyright on the materials I want to have digitized?
