University libraries face an increasingly diverse digital world in which tablet and mobile devices are the preferred access platforms for research, teaching and learning. The University of Wollongong Library has responded by digitising its unique archival collections, embedding digitisation processes, developing a digitisation program and providing a Digital Collections portal to material held within its repositories. The Library has also embarked on digitisation of the nationally significant WIN4 television news collection 1964-84. Comprising over 1,000 reels of 16mm black and white film and associated scripts, the project entails significant technological, copyright and logistical hurdles in providing streamed access to content.
