Ingenta and The British Library collaborate to digitise and distribute archive content
We’re pleased to announce that we will be collaborating with the British Library on the digitisation and distribution of archival content for academic institutions. Every institutional library has its own archive of rare documents and publications which, in print format, remains accessible to very few researchers. Though many institutions have the technical resources to create digital copies, none are as advanced as the British Library’s own facilities at Boston Spa in West Yorkshire and St Pancras in London, or have a dedicated team of staff, including preservation experts and conservators.
Ingenta Connect was established nearly two decades ago, and now reaches almost every academic library in the world; content digitised by the British Library’s professional team can now be disseminated through Ingenta Connect and its sister site Ingenta Open, potentially making rare content available to hundreds of thousands of researchers and academic institutions worldwide.
