Wellcome Trust Digitisation – Request for Suppliers

The Wellcome Library – part of the Wellcome Trust – is currently developing a new strategy which will include a programme to digitise the Library’s unique and significant, out-of-copyright, holdings.

Given the scale of the task – preliminary projections suggest that the size of the collection (excluding the in-copyright material) is around 45 million pages – it is envisaged that the Library will seek an external supplier (or a consortium of suppliers) to undertake and manage a large element of this programme.

The Library invites Suppliers, who are potentially interested in helping the Library plan its digitisation programme, to respond to a Request-for-Information document which sets out the current boundaries of this project.
