Digitisation

We provide digitisation services and advice to the UQ Community in support of research, teaching and learning.

We digitise significant parts of Library collections to make them easier to find and access. This includes scanning items such as maps, architectural plans, photographs, 3D objects, bound volumes, theses and departmental papers.
