New! Scanning Service Request Form
Submit this form to place a scanning order before you drop off your original at the Valley Library.

Scanning a Large ImageFlatbed and transparency scanning is available for sizes up to 12x17".

Feed scanning (up to 42" one side, no greater than ¼" thick) that contains multiple layers must have all edges taped down securely.

Turnaround time is 48 hours during normal business hours, Monday-Friday 8am to 5pm, excluding holidays. (Example: if you submit a job at 3:00pm on Friday, the job would be finished by 3:00pm the following Tuesday.) SMS strives to exceed this turnaround time but it is not guaranteed.

Depending on staff availability, a rush order may be possible for an additional fee of $50. The fee will be charged to your index code.

When the job is completely, you will be able to download the scanned images from FileShip, OSU's file sharing service. SMS will send you an email giving you the private URL to retrieve your files. If printing is needed in addition to scanning, please allow an additional 48 hours and note our printing fees.


Slides/Neg/Flat under 12"x18" $0.25 each
Flat Art up to 42" $5.00 each
