For a complete listing of digital projects currently underway throughout Australia please visit the National Library's Australian Libraries Gateway page. You may also wish to visit two other digital scriptoria on the web, the beautiful joint project between the Bancroft Library of the University of California, Berkeley, and Columbia University's Rare Book and Manuscript Library's Digital Scriptorium as well as the magnificent Duke University's Digital Scriptorium.

If you wish to help us in the digitisation and preparation of more titles from our Archival or Rare Book Collections for our Scriptorium please consult our Benefactor's page to see how you can become a benefactor.
