Digitisation Projects

The Preservation and Access Imaging Team undertakes digitisation projects.

Digitisation is the process of photographing or scanning a hard copy document to create a digital image.

This image can then be made available online and used for publicity or outreach work. It also helps with preservation as the original doesn't need to be handled as frequently.

Digitisation is a long and complex process and many considerations need to be taken into account both before embarking on it and while planning and undertaking it.

To help us ensure we consider everything we need to, we have developed a General Digitisation Project Plan (pdf 196KB). However, each project presents different challenges, so the plan is always being revised and updated.

In the last 6 years we've undertaken a number of projects, alongside the team's other core work. If you'd like to see more about these projects, please look at our project pages or view some sample images in our image galleries
