The Higher Education Digitisation Service (HEDS): Access in the Future, Preserving the Past

Authors:

Abstract

The aim of this paper is to discuss the following aspects of digitisation: HEDS and its services, with focus on how HEDS fits into the overall digital libraries initiatives of the UK; digitisation projects and resources in Europe and elsewhere; myths surrounding digitisation; and the future of digitisation in the UK. Many of the themes of this talk begin with ‘it depends’. For example: it depends on what you want from the information content of the originals; it depends on the balance between costs and benefit goals; it depends on the nature of the original material itself.
