The Digital Media Lab (DML) at our Ewald Branch is a DIY media conversion center. GPPL cardholders can use our equipment and software to convert VHS tapes, audiotapes, photographs, slides, and vinyl records to assorted digital formats.
In order to use the DML, patrons must complete an Orientation session for the media type(s) they will be converting. Since the digital conversions happen in real time — for example, a 2 hour VHS tape takes 2 hours to convert — patrons wishing to use the lab will need to schedule follow-up DIY sessions. Both DML Orientation sessions and DML DIY hours are by appointment only, and due to recent staffing changes, we are in the process of revising the schedules for both.
For information about DML appointment availability, please contact Danis Houser, Ewald Branch Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 313-821-8830 x200. We are doing our best to establish a regular schedule very soon!
