National Library of New Zealand Digitisation Strategy 2010-2015

Posted by admin on Jul 2, 2010

The National Library of New Zealand has developed the Digitisation Strategy 2010-2015 to bridge the gap between the level of access to its print and analogue collections, and the new expectations of customer access in the digital world. It explains how our digitisation programmes will satisfy the needs of current and future users.

The strategy outlines three major digitisation programmes within the Library:

– Digitisation for access will concentrate on providing remote access to New Zealand’s documentary heritage and taonga collections in a digital world.
– Digitisation for preservation will focus on using digitisation to meet preservation goals, and particularly to migrating the intellectual content of at-risk collection items when the physical object is deteriorating.
– Digitisation for customers and donors will continue its practice of digitising materials for customers and donors upon request.
