Printer-friendly versionSend by email

Digital Collections Department staff offer training and assistance to faculty and graduate students to help them get started on a digital project in the Digital Media Lab.

We offer training for slide and image scanning, video digitization, audio recording/editing, text scanning, and basic video editing.

To make an appointment please call (847) 467-1080 or email

The lab is open M-F 9:30am - 5:00pm

Office Visits

One-on-one training and office visits are available by request for help with the same topics that the workshops cover, in a more informal setting and give you more individual attention. Office visits are possible for those who have the neccessary software installed in your office. Contact Julie Rudder  for more information.

Help for People Teaching With Media

Digital Collections staff are here to teach you how to use image databases such as ARTstor and the Digital Image Library. These databases are a great way for you to share images with your students.
