Digitisation Suite

UCLDH are proud to coordinate the UCL Multi-Modal Digitisation Suite, which is a shared facility for teaching and research in digitisation technologies.

UCL Multi-Modal Digitisation Suite

The digitisation suite is a joint endeavor between UCL Faculty of Arts and Humanities, UCL Faculty of Engineering Sciences, and UCL Library Services. Support for teaching and training is provided by UCL Department of Information Studies, and IT support is generously provided by the UCL Department of Computer Science. The main aim of the suite is to provide a space in which people can learn, research, and experiment with digitisation technologies.

The suite is fully set up with state of the art capture for both 2D and 3D objects. We have a range of cameras, flat bed scanners, microfilm and microfiche digitization facilities, a 3D scanner, and facilities to convert audio and video to digital formats. These facilities are available for taught courses, such as the Introduction to Digitisation module in UCLDIS, and are regularly used by PhD students and researchers working in this area.

Access to the suite is prioritized for those connected with UCLDH and the faculties and departments that have contributed to the facility. Training is needed before being allowed to access the suite without supervision (the costs of which have to covered by those requiring training). For any queries on how to access this facility please contact Sarah Davenport, Coordinator of UCL Centre for Digital Humanities, on s.davenport@ucl.ac.uk.

Please note, this is a teaching and research facility, and we do not run a digitisation service. We work closely with the Photography Team from UCL Creative and Media Services who will be able to assist you if you have items that you wished to have digitised for your research or your teaching.
