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? Both days of this course focus on 'still image' capture with Part 2 offering a practical follow-up to the first day with demonstrations and tours.

Course Description

This training day 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.


Timetable for one day courses held at the British Library in London.

Students should arrive by 9.30am for registration.
