SCOLAR is leading a major INSRV digitisation programme. An important range of audio, visual and textual material from libraries and archives will be digitised and made available via the SCOLAR website from late-2008 onwards. Amongst the material to be digitised will be 19th century Cardiff Medical Officers' Reports, architectural documentation, First World War literary manuscripts, Welsh dialects on magnetic tape, footage of University staff and students on cinefilm, and history of pharmacy slides.
The digitisation team is:
Peter Keelan, Digitisation Project Manager, 029 2087 5678
Mark Barrett, Digitisation Project Technical Coordinator, 029 2087 5681
Alison Smith, Digitisation Project Administrative Coordinator, 029 2087 9369
