During the 2016 EduWeek the Library Services (PC) received a voucher for the scanning of historical documents from Firstcoast Technologies, a company specialising in office optimisation and electronic document technologies.
The Library decided to use the opportunity to enhance a current project, namely the digitisation of Die Wapad, a local student newspaper . Due to the large format of the bound volumes digitisation thereof is not an easy task. Die Wapad is one of a number of digitisation projects being done in-house at the library.
Firstcoast has just delivered the digitised copies in pdf format, and the Library is grateful for their contribution to the project.
