Abstract

This paper, based on a research visit to the United Kingdom in 1999, discusses the electronic progress being achieved by some major British cultural institutions, particularly in comparison to digitization progress which has been made by Australia's first prime ministerial library. It examines digitization of difficult collection areas such as multimedia and the desirability of upscaling digital projects.
