Wakefield Library: Unlocking Collections – The George Fox Manuscripts Digitisation Project

Posted in Opportunities

Wakefield Libraries have been successful in receiving funding to scan and digitise the Fox Manuscripts, a handwritten and illustrated set of 19th century manuscripts, there are four volumes in total.

Wakefield Libraries seek an individual to use photography and filmmaking skills to follow the scanning and digitisation process in partnership with our digitisation partner, Microform.

This should then be turned into a short, subtitled documentary showcasing the scanning and digitisation process, as well as the installation of the finished scanning project onto digital kiosks within Pontefract Library, museum, and castle.

The documentary will be shown to Council Management, Library Management and the public to provide an insight into the scanning and digitisation process.

The chosen candidate would be asked to hold initial meetings with project co-ordinators to discuss the project in June, with draft imagery/film prepared by August 5 2024.

We expect the finished product to be completed by 19th August 2024.
