Digitisation is an essential strategy for the preservation of the Memorial's National Collection. It helps preserve the original items and allows greater access to the collection by the public and researchers.

The Memorial is currently digitising collections items in a variety of formats. These include photographic negatives, archival material, printed items, objects, magnetic audio-visual tapes and narrow gauge film.

The Digital Collection hub page is a central space where people can access the Memorial’s new digital content.


Collection access

As we digitise collection items, some objects will be removed from public access or display. We aim to minimise disruption by limiting the amount of time objects are unavailable.

Behind the scenes

Several teams across the Memorial work on different aspects of the digitisation project. They include the Research Centre (which manages the archival and printed collections), the Photograph, Film and Sound section (that includes the Multimedia team, which does a lot of the digitisation) and Collection Services (which manage and care for collection items). Curators from the Art and Military Heraldry and Technology section also help selected and catalogue material for digitisation.
