In 2023, our third year of operation, the Centre is fully operational and we are continuing the digitisation of our partners’ collections. The Centre also offers a fee-based digitisation service.
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 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.
