Donation & Digitization Program

The Archive gladly accepts any material that furthers our mission in providing access to historic Korean images. All donated material is scanned to U.S. National Archives and Records Administration standards, properly stored for posterity, and published on our website where relevant.  As a part of our digitization process, we provide HD digital scans of any donated material to their original owners free of charge, giving donors continued direct access to their images.  We currently accept & process:

- 35mm slides
- Negative film
- Film reels (8mm, 16mm, 35mm)
- Photo prints

    Please fill out a Donation Form if you are interested in donating, and we will soon contact you with more information to complete the donation process.

    We accept monetary donations via PayPal (one-time donations) and Patreon (recurring monthly donations) to help cover the Archive's expenses:

    - Hard drives & cloud storage to store scans

    Using the Archive's Images

    We encourage professors, historians, students, and anyone else interested in using our images for academic presentations to submit a Free Image Request Form, and we will send the requested images at no charge.  We'll gladly take a donation of any amount as a thank you, but don't feel obligated.
