File Conversion Services

In conjunction with the PBMS Document Center, EMC is providing file conversion services, including conversion of your native files to PostScript (*.ps, *.prn) and PDF (*.pdf).

  1. E-mail your native files to emc_services_bumc@bu.edu
    or bring them to our office on a CD, floppy, zip or jaz disk.
    (Make sure to include all supporting files such as any image files and fonts.)
  2. EMC will convert your file to PostScript and PDF.
  3. EMC will email you both, the PostScript and PDF files, within 24 hours. (The PDF file will be your proof of the PostScript file).
  4. You can then submit the appropriate file to PBMS.
