The Department of Russian at the University of Bristol has long enjoyed a reputation among students and academics as one of the UK’s top Russian departments, rating third in the Independent's Complete University Guide in 2011 and described as a ‘model for other Russian Departments to follow’ in a recent external review.
Following an unsuccessful application for a research grant, which was rejected on technical grounds, the department approached JISC Digital Media to re-work the technical aspects of its project proposal.
The department wanted to ensure that, in the notoriously competitive funding landscape for humanities research, it could present the best possible case for the money and retain its position at the forefront of its field through the ensuing project.
This document proposes a number of potential challenges associated with the digitisation of a collection. It then examines the value of lessons learned from previous projects when attempting to meet those challenges. It is intended to be of use to resource management staff considering the digitisation of all or part of their collection.
