The Texas General Land Office (GLO) Archives and Records digital scanning lab is one of the leading archival scanning labs in Texas, and has scanned more documents and maps dealing with the history of the settlement of Texas than any other archival repository in the state. More original land grant documents are added to our website daily.
The GLO Archives Scan Lab houses some of the best digitization equipment found anywhere in the state. Today, the scan lab is home to six scanners, three large-format printers and three high-speed scanner/printers.
The GLO Scan Lab has been the scanning resource for other state and local agencies and non-profit institutions including the Texas State Library and Archives Commission, the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum, the Austin History Center of the Austin Public Library, the Sophienberg Museum and Archives, the Southwest Athletic Trainers Association, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, and the Texas State Preservation Board. Most recently, the scan lab has handled digital scanning work to assist in documenting GLO Disaster Recovery efforts along the Texas Gulf Coast in response to Hurricanes Rita and Ike for the federal government (FEMA).
