This course will be of interest to academics at all levels (including PhD students) who travel to remote locations (including small libraries worldwide) to access their primary material (often pamphlets and hand-written ephemera) which they are interested in digitising not only for their own scholarly appraisal, but also as a means of enabling access to the wider academic community. We will go step-by-step through preparation of materials, cataloguing systems, rigs and illumination, tethered photography using Lightroom, smartphone lenses and Halide, and packaging and checksums. We will also be discussing theoretical and ethical questions around decolonisation, reparation, and handling of Black and Indigenous heritage.

This course is open to graduate students and staff at the University of Cambridge. Places are limited and available to book via UTBS.
