Equipment Loans

The Digitising Collections SA team have developed equipment kits available for loan by South Australian collecting institutions and the broader South Australian History Network.
There are online resources that have been created to accompany these kits, and each kit will include an inventory list and basic instructions for use.
The digitisation kits are available to book for up to three months at a time, and you are able to mix and match kits and accessories to meet your digitisation needs.

Digitisation Studio

In addition to digitisation kits, the History Trust of South Australia also has a bookable digitisation studio space right in the Adelaide CBD, where you can access specialised digitisation equipment. For a fee this studio will come with a digitisation officer who will work with your group to digitise South Australian collections material.
