Abstract

This paper reports a study into how digitisation projects have effected collections of historical photographs, and concludes that the short term project based nature of many digitisation projects has been detrimental in several ways. This work is novel (particularly in the digital library field) in that it eschews emphasis on technology to instead look at the values in the information resources themselves and how digitisation impacts on those values. It is also original in the digital library field in that it looks back at the impact of completed projects rather than describing current projects.
