DIGITISATION OF LOCAL HISTORY COLLECTIONS
VICTORIAN PUBLIC LIBRARIES
This manual is intended to support the Image Digitisation of Local History Collections training courses conducted by the State Library of Victoria in July 2002. It provides a simple introduction to the issues libraries need to consider when planning and implementing an image digitisation project. More detailed technical and practical information is available from a variety of publications and Internet sites and many of these have been cited throughout the manual and in the bibliography. The manual provides a starting point and a broad guide to the various aspects of a library image digitisation project.
Information contained in this manual does not constitute legal or technical advice. Users should ensure they obtain appropriate professional assistance or advice in these areas before embarking on a digitisation project.
