This programme of work has been initiated to drive forward the vision to improve discoverability and access to digital collections for learning, teaching and research.  

The focus of the Digital Library Programme will be on developing the infrastructure to support digital scholarship activities and new interfaces to provide authorised access to large scale digitised and purchased content. It will address current issues with discoverability and content access through improving the user experience for students, researchers, and online audiences.  

This transformational programme is set to run for a minimum of three years commencing October 2018.
