Circa can digitise items in your collection including photographs, documents, bound texts and audio-visual material such as video, film and audio cassettes.


A key benefit of digitisation is preservation, since once it is digitised, access to an item's content can easily be provided to researchers and visitors without exposing the original to damage or wear. A digital copy also acts as a backup to original items in case of natural disaster or organic degradation.


We can digitise the following items for preservation or exhibition:

  • Diaries, letters and other handwritten texts

  • Photographs, negatives and slides

  • Obsolete audio-visual formats such as VHS video, reel-to-reel audio, audio cassettes and film
