computer board and constructionAt Aotea Utanganui we are constantly adding to our digital heritage collections. As you may imagine this is an enormous task. Why Digitise? Museums face added competition from online communities to share content to offer our customers a global visitor experience through our collections. Digitisation is the process of creating a surrogate copy of a photograph, document, film, audio tape or map, then these digital copies can be shared on the internet. We can also create a preservation master copy used for long-term preservation efforts that is accessible and reliable in the future. Check back here regularly to see how we’re going.
