In 2017, Texas State University received a TSLAC TexTreasures Grant, funded by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services, to digitize at-risk photographic negatives in the University Archives. Since then, tens of thousands of negatives and documents have been captured through the two custom camera stations purchased through this grant and a number of additional changes to the original configuration were added to help improve function. This presentation will cover the on-going development of the stations themselves, including an overview of the benefits and risks of implementing a custom camera station, as well as lessons learned.
