Brief description This project aims to investigate how reading and literature work in the post-print age. Digitisation is the future of the preservation of and access to Australia's literary and cultural record and yet its implementation is not well understood. This project will investigate what determines forms of digitisation, which books are digitised, who can access them and how these changes influence our reading experiences. The project will use digitisation cases studies to generate a history of digitisation and the policies that govern it. The project will develop recommendations for cultural infrastructure projects, nationally and internationally. This project will provide significant benefits including improved knowledge and policy for the future protection and development of digital text technologies.
