When you’re looking to enhance or expand your About Page, Mapping the Legacy entries, Highlights, and Look/Listen, you might have some images and documents you’d like to include. However, these materials might not be digitized.
There are many methods to scan. If scanning on a scanner or printer with scanning abilities is not a possibility, you may use other electronic methods on your phone or tablet. To transfer from your phone or tablet, we’ll be using Google Drive. Google Drive is available on both android and Apple products and is a free storage software that comes with your Gmail account. The best part of Google Drive? You can download directly from Google Drive to your Media Library!
Before you get started, remember:
- Anything you scan and therefore embed onto your site will require you to clear the rights. Please review our Guide to Clearing Rights, which explains your legal responsibilities as a contributor to the PAL site.
- Instead of scanning, if you can find the same material on a reputable site and can link, you will not need to clear the rights.
Please Note: You can take pictures of pictures/documents with your phone or tablet. However, if using your phone or tablet, scanning is your best option since the digital file might be too large to easily work with.
