Tuesday Treasure - Digitisation
14 Nov 2017 12pm - 2pm
Join us for November’s Tuesday Treasure to discover how the Library’s digitisation team meet the challenges posed by digitising rare, precious, fragile and sometimes odd items in Special Collections.
Have you ever wondered how manuscripts are digitised?
Do you know how long it takes to photograph Shakespeare's First Folio?
How on earth do you photograph an 18-metre-long, 15th-century scroll?!
What else does the digitisation studio and the University Library do to preserve Special Collections materials and make them accessible?
If you've ever asked these questions then come along to November's Tuesday Treasure where the digitisation studio team will be on hand with some of their equipment to demonstrate how they photograph the rare and fragile items in Special Collections.
Drop in any time between 12noon and 2pm.
Please check times with event organiser for any last minute changes.
Free, drop-in event
