The Cultural Heritage Digitisation Service is an essential service integrated within the Library and University Collections’ Digital Library, with direct impact on the use of digitised and digital collections for online learning, teaching, and research through the digitisation of and long-term digital access to rare and unique collections at the University of Edinburgh. For more information about our service, please visit https://www.ed.ac.uk/information-services/library-museum-gallery/digitisation-services/cultural-heritage-digitisation-service.

The purpose of this blog is to share the projects, exhibitions, and materials our photographers are working on, and to showcase the contributions of student interns and volunteers as well as to report on the Cultural Heritage Digitisation Service’s engagement with exciting trends in the digitisation and digital libraries space. Our staff have the opportunity to work closely with the diverse and treasured collections of the University of Edinburgh, and this blog serves as a way for them to share their thoughts, discoveries, and work with the wider community.
