Palmer School is digitizing local history through a five-year project financed by a $1.5 million grant from the Robert David Lion Gardiner Foundation. In February 2017, a group of staff and students started by setting up an on-campus Digitization Laboratory. The lab featured two scanners and two mobile digitization units, including the DT Atom scanner, a highly flexible platform manufactured by Digital Transitions.  This tabletop digitization platform can be extended and upgraded to accommodate nearly any digitization project including fragile and oversized items. So far, students and staff have scanned nearly 15,000 historical documents and have found themselves moved by powerful historical materials. Read the full story here.
