The British Library has been digitising its collections since the 1990s with hundreds of small and large projects completed over the decades.

  • Samantha Tillett, Head of Business Development, Partnerships and Licencing
    Sam will talk about working with publishers on digitisation projects and public/private partnerships

  • Sandra Tuppen, Heritage Made Digital Portfolio Manager and Andrew Longworth, Digitisation Workflow Manager 
    Andrew and Sandra will talk about our strategic programme, Hertiage Made Digital, and our end-to-end workflows that we have put in place for digitisation projects

It is anticipated that the presentations will cover the first hour, followed by 30 mins for questions and discussion.
