Colortrac SG44 Scanner

Colortrac SG44 Scanner

This equipment allows MAGIS to scan and copy maps up to 44 inches in width and is for our digital preservation operation and support for MAGIS users.

  • Please note that this is not a scan/copy-on-demand or self service; it is subject to availability of trained student assistants.
  • Fees are charged for these services.

Scans are produced in a number of formats (usually TIFF), in 300 to 600 dpi, and in 8 bit mode with an RGB color profile.

General Information

  • Large format services from MAGIS are limited and dependent on available staffing.
  • Scanning is for materials in the MAGIS collections.
  • A minimum of 1 week notice is required for small orders (up to 6 items) and 2 weeks notice for orders greater than 6 items; delivery is subject to staffing availability.
  • Items that do not require the use of the large format scanner require a minimum of 2 days notice. This includes items that we already have scanned or own copies of, including our aerial photograph collection.
  • The library reserves the right to refuse large orders or orders that are outside the scope of MAGIS's purview. MAGIS primarily services the geospatial needs of UH Manoa, and then the UH System; we will honor requests for others, subject to staff availability.
  • Requests that require more than one hour of research will be charged a research fee of $80 per hour thereafter. Aerial photograph requests which include the Island name, Flight Line Number and Unique ID retrieved by using our viewer, will not be charged a research fee.
  • UH system and East West Center users will not be charged for the first 12 digital copies each year. Thereafter, cost recovery and media & delivery fees will apply.
  • MAGIS will not reproduce any items that do not belong in the public domain unless the user obtains express permission from publisher specifying that the object will be used for academic purposes. We will consider other requests that might fall under the purview of "fair use" under the Copyright Law (Title 17 of the US Code). Fair use is defined as that which is "not used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research."
  • MAGIS fees subsidize the staff time and the long-term preservation of the collection and ensure continued access to maps and imagery for both the public and the University of Hawaii academic community.
