The RDIC accommodates a wide range of objects
including framed artwork, transparent items and bound volumes. In addition
to scanning, the RDIC performs many associated tasks including data entry,
OCR, transcription, large format printing, website development, database
design, and geo-referencing.
Online examples of our work:
