This training day will answer those questions to enable you to start a digitisation project.

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?

Both days of this course focus on 'still image' capture, however, it is recommended that you attend Part 1, which is more presentation-based before continuing to Part 2.

The British Library has collaborated with West Dean College to deliver this course Find more courses in this series of study days in preservation and collection care for libraries.
