Principles for public and private digitisation partnerships

NSLA libraries are committed to making our content accessible. A large percentage of our vast published and unpublished collections is yet to be digitised due to the prohibitive costs and human resources required. Consequently, some NSLA libraries may enter into mutually beneficial agreements with commercial vendors or non-commercial entities around the digitisation and use of content.

NSLA libraries are guided by the governing principles in the document below. We recognise the differing requirements of providers and undertake to treat all proposals in a fair and transparent manner. The principles are non-binding (except where copyright legislation prevails) but reflect the shared values that underpin our work.
