In 2003 a Regional Scan Center was established as a collaborative project between LILRC and the State University of New York at Stony Brook Library. When LILRC moved from Stony Brook University in 2009, the Scan Center was moved to the new location at, 627 N. Sunrise Service Rd, Bellport, New York, 11713-1540.

Who May use the Scan Center?
The LILRC scan center is designed to assist library staff and those who work with Long Island historical materials to be able to scan them and make them available on line through the LILRC Regional Digitization Program, “Long Island Memories”.
These specialty scanners assist in the creation and implementation of work related and research related projects requiring the use of computer software and hardware capable of converting various sized analog objects to a variety of digital formats.
Preference will be given to LILRC members and participants in the LILRC Regional Digitization Program for use of this equipment. The scan center is not available for personal individual use.
Please call for an appointment to use this equipment free of charge. You will be given instruction on the use of the scanners, but you will do the actual scanning of your materials.
Please call the LILRC office at: 631-675-1570 to make an appointment.
