As Phase 2 of the JISC Digitisation Programme draws to a close, we continue to get plenty of calls asking when Phase 3 will be starting, with great enthusiasm for more of the same.
At present, JISC has no funds for a third phase of work on the scale of the previous two phases (totalling £23.5m).
However, JISC is still keen to fund innovative digitisation work in the future, and we are currently making the case for how to get such funds.
So, if you are looking for funds for your own collections then don’t throw the ideas away. Continue to make a noise about them, think of innovative ways in which they could be used digitally, and this will all help the case for further digital work.
