About this course

Digitisation can increase access to collections, provide surrogates for vulnerable originals and enable virtual reunification of collections. But how do you know where to start? What equipment do you need, what type of image should you create, how do you prepare items for digitisation and make plans for their digital access?

Course Description

This training day will answer those questions to enable you to start a digitisation project. It concentrates on ‘still image’ capture and outlines the processes involved in planning digitisation projects.  It is focused on the digitisation of library and archive materials mainly from the British Library collections and other related projects. The day includes guidance on copyright licensing, metadata and workflow management.
