photographer reviewing digitised images of handwritten material


This pricing page provides a general guide to our standard service charges for digitisation. Pricing is based on cost recovery. Different rates will apply to fragile or non-standard material based on an assessment of the material. If you are interested in digitising with us, please contact Partner Support to arrange a quote.

Partners and digitisation contributors benefit from the National Library's established processes and relationships with scanning and Optimal Character Recognition (OCR) contractors.

Trove Partners also receive 20% discount on the standard rate. Your project may qualify for the Partner rate if it is supported by a Trove Partner. Please contact Partner Support to check if your project is eligible.
