Digital Projects

The Heritage Collections and Digitisation Team runs an annual programme of digital project work.

Our projects include an in-house programme of digitisation and publication from existing collections, and partnerships with academics/researchers.

Our partnerships have varied outputs and include:

  • Digital exhibition creation and curation
  • Digital preservation
  • Digitisation of archives and special collections
  • Hosting and publication
  • Metadata creation and enhancement
  • Partnerships on funding bids
  • Rights management

We welcome discussions about partnership projects, and can be contacted on
