Abstract/Summary The paper examines the University of Queensland Library’s involvement with digitization through the development of the initial digital projects. • Digilib: Architectural Image Database • Images of Early Brisbane: Selected Images from the Alcock Collection • Hume Collection These projects were developed in accordance with the Library’s digitization goals that include: • The desire to make collections accessible in the first instance to staff and students of the University of Queensland and ultimately to researchers throughout the world, and • The need to preserve rare, fragile and unique items The images from these collections are being added to PictureAustralia as part of the Library’s goal of contributing to Australian digital resources. There is discussion of how these early trials are informing our future plans for digitization.
