Digitisation at the British Library

For the past two decades, the British Library has been involved in digitisation. More recently, we have entered the world of mass digitisation in partnership with external funding bodies and technology providers. Through digitisation, we are creating a valuable and enduring resource for scholars and the public alike. We estimate that this digitisation activity to date represents less than 1% of our total collection. We want to build on our achievements by maintaining and extending our digitisation programme.

Digitisation underpins the Library’s corporate strategy, including our content strategy and digital library programme, and these will inform our thinking as we develop our strategy to 2020.
