SCC - Digital Services

About Digital Services

The SCC employs highly specialized imaging and multimedia tools in the development of digital projects. The large-format scanner, one of the few available in the entire state, is ideal for digitizing large objects such as sheet maps and broadsides. The large capacity storage devices, servers, and backup systems enable the SCC to provide specialized digital services to the Rutgers University community.

Who Can Use?

The SCC and its resources are available to members of the Rutgers University community, to project partners, and on a limited basis, the general public. Grant funded project partners have priority use of funded services and tools. The facilities of the SCC supplement the digital resources already available on campus. Rutgers University Computing Services (RUCS), Creative Services, and the Teaching Excellence Center (TEC) provide a variety of general digital production services. Please consult "Scanning and other Multimedia Production Services Available at Rutgers - New Brunswick Campuses" to determine if your project is better initiated in one of the general labs on campus.

Large Format Scanning Service



Large Format refers to documents exceeding the dimensions of 8.5" x 17". The Large Format Scanning system in use is a PhaseOne P45 mounted on a Hasselbach H101, with the capacity to scan documents up to 36" in width and 48 " in length with full 32-bit color. The scanner provides true optical resolution of up to 600 dpi. Several file formats are available for high quality presentations.

Scanning Services

The SCC staff will scan projects of 20 items or less. Projects encompassing greater than 20 items can be self-scanned by the user, after receiving training on the operation of the scanner. Scanner use is scheduled by advance reservation.

Smaller projects are temporarily stored as uncompressed tiff files, until retrieved by the requestor. Larger projects can be temporarily stored on the network in a selected format, for eventual retrieval by the user. The SCC does not retain any file copies. The dimensions of the copies and the resolution required must be submitted in advance of scanning.


A modest usage fee is charged to cover the cost of experienced personnel required to administer and operate the underlying technology. Pricing is determined by the final size of the scanned image as described in the pricing grid below:

Affiliation First 150 MB Additional 150 MB (per 150 MB)
RU Faculty, Staff and Students $10.00 $5.00
Grant affiliates $10.00 $5.00
General Public $15.00 $6.00

* A 310 MB scan would cost either $15.00 or $20.00 depending on your affiliation
