Scanning on demand

Many people choose to have archival materials digitised. Not only do the resulting scans facilitate research, they can also save you a trip to our reading room.

With our ‘Scanning on Demand’ service, the Zeeland Archives offer you a way to obtain scans, free of charge. Using our online catalogue, you can submit your request to have the documents of your choice digitised.

1. Find the right archive and inventory number in our online catalogue. The requested inventory number will be digitised in its entirety.

2. Open the detailed description of the requested inventory number and click on the ‘Scanning on Demand’ button (CD icon) in the top right corner.

3. Fill out the requested information and click ‘Send’. Your request has now been submitted and you will receive a confirmation email.

4. Prior to the digitisation process, an employee of the Zeeland Archives will evaluate the condition of the materials. If the material state is found unsuitable for scanning, we will inform your via email.

5. If your request is approved, your scans will be made available online within approximately three weeks. Once they are accessible, you will be notified via email. The scans are now freely available for everyone and can also be downloaded.

6. Every week, we can process up to 35 Scanning on Demand requests. Once the 35th request has been submitted, the Scanning on Demand option is automatically disabled. On the first day of the following week, the option to submit requests is made available again. In order to offer the opportunity to request free scans to as many people as possible, we can approve no more than three requests per person, per week.
