Our dedicated technical crew is on the move, taking our cutting-edge equipment on a journey from the capital to the heart of the Red Centre.
Our team relocated the state-of-the-art CopiBook from Canberra to Alice Springs for AIATSIS. This move aligns with our commitment to serving clients with excellence, no matter where they are on the map.
AIATSIS recently opened a new facility in Mparntwe/Alice Springs in partnership with First Nations Media Australia. The new facility provides culturally appropriate digitisation and storage capacity along with local training opportunities.
The development of the AIATSIS Alice Spring Engagement and Digitisation Centre presents the historic next stage for the Institute in telling their national story.
The CopiBook is specifically designed for digitising books and bound materials. Its book-friendly design minimises stress on the spine and pages, making it ideal for digitising delicate, rare, or valuable items. By digitising the materials with the CopiBook, AIATSIS can create a digital surrogate, reducing the need for handling and preserving the original items. This helps extend the lifespan of the materials.
Sharing digitised collections with the community promotes broader accessibility, educational opportunities, and cultural exchange.
The new facility opened to the public early 2024.
