The Centre has a ten-year vision to digitise the Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences Collections of its partners. It also offers a fee-based customised digitisation service for anyone with specific high quality digitisation needs.
The collections that the Centre digitises are divided into the following categories:
collections identified for priority digitisation under the original DCWA LIEF grant application,
collections associated with the the ‘Life after Digitisation: Future-Proofing WA's Vulnerable Cultural Heritage’ linkage grant project, and
local community and private collections.
LIEF Grant Collections
Collections from UWA, one of the DCWA's partners, are now made available on UWA Collected. UWA Collected is a new online service for storing, preserving and exploring the University’s digital collections together in one place. It is one part of the University's strategy to invest in data-intensive discovery. As UWA and the Digitisation Centre of Western Australia work to digitise the University’s collections, UWA Collected makes them discoverable and becomes a database of reference for communities and researchers.
