Digital pathway - What should I digitise?

Resource

This resource, from Culture24, considers choosing which collections, sub-collections or items to digitise may mean considering significance, risk of deterioration, popularity or planned use for exhibitions or projects. Whatever criteria you decide to use, it is important to take a structured approach to prioritising digitisation.
