Multispectral imaging in action

British Library Digitisation Services will be exhibiting at DCDC from 13 to 14 November in Birmingham.

Published date:

DCDC (Discovering Collections, Discovering Communities) brings together colleagues from across the archive, library, museum and academic sectors to explore shared opportunities, collective challenges, and to discuss how each sector can work more effectively with one another. DCDC19 will explore the possibilities of the digital shift for collections, audience expectations, and professional practices. More information about the event, at The Birmingham Conference & Events Centre, can be found on the event website.

The British Library has been at the forefront of digitisation and digital preservation projects for over 20 years. We look after the nation’s treasures and have extensive experience and expertise in handling rare, fragile and heritage material, and material of cultural significance spanning three millennia. Preserving history and making knowledge accessible is what we’re good at.

Unlocking your archive. Digitising your personal memories. Making your day-to-day business documents accessible. Creating new revenue streams. You can trust us to get it right for you. Come see us at #DCDC19 to see how we can help.
