Digitising the Fairfax Glass Plate Negative Collection at the National Library of Australia

Posted by admin on Jul 19, 2013

The Fairfax Glass Plate Negative collection of over 17,000 glass plate negatives was donated to the National Library last year. After sorting and then cleaning, accessioning and rehousing the collection the next step has been to digitise each negative. This began in mid March 2013, after an initial testing period in February.

The collection is comprised of three sizes of glass plate negatives: small 4 x 5″, medium 5 x 7″, and large 7 x 9″. The majority of the collection is the smallest size of which there are approximately 13,000.
