My love and experience of digitising historical documents stems from working in two digitisation teams, for the National Library of Scotland, and on the ScotlandsPeople and British Newspaper Archive websites. This experience is mixed in with studying History at the University of Dundee in the late 1990s.
Working in these teams inspired me to learn more about digitisation processes. Over the years, I have learned how to scan 35mm slides, videos, camcorder cassettes, photo negatives and 8mm cine films. As a result, I have an excellent knowledge of digitisation, as well as a passion for the subject.
