About Us

Temple of Saturn in the Forum, Rome, Italy. Cavaye Glass Lantern Slides.

The Digital Imaging Unit is the photography department for the Centre for Research Collections located in the Edinburgh University Main Library. Information about the services we provide can be found at http://www.ed.ac.uk/schools-departments/information-services/services/library-museum-gallery/crc/copying-digitisation or if you’d just like to browse some of our images go to http://images.is.ed.ac.uk. You can also find a selection of our images on Flickr.

The DIU photographers are Susan Pettigrew & Malcolm Brown, and every week we have beautiful and fascinating books, manuscripts and objects passing through the department for digitisation- so we thought we’d like to share some of the images and projects we work on with you. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

  1. Great stuff! Carry on the good work. How about starting on pre-1920 student records, especially the matriculation albums? And Henderson’s Donations Ledger?
