The aim of the day is to create greater awareness of digital preservation. Digital technologies are a defining feature of our age and both the UON University Library (Cultural collections and GLAMx) and IT Services (Innovation Team) are collaborating on many exciting digitisation projects using 3D scanning, virtual reality and other digital technologies.

The GLAMx Living Histories Digitisation Lab is part of Cultural Collections supporting students in learning how to transform physical format into a digital object by using innovative technological solutions to expand the accessibility of archival sources. See some examples below.

Another popular resource is Living Histories@UON a state-of-the-art online platform providing access to tens of thousands of digital items including photographs, audio, video, exhibitions and more.
