Andrea is an Associate Professor in Law at the University of Exeter. Prior to joining the University of Exeter, she was a Postgraduate Researcher and Ph.D. Candidate in Cultural Heritage Law for the CREATe Research Councils UK Centre for Copyright and New Business Models in the Creative Economy at the University of Glasgow School of Law.

Her research examines the impact of technology on the public domain, examines the obstacles and opportunities generated by the digital realm, and it proposes recommendations for the legal, cultural, and ethical issues that continue to challenge cultural institutions.

Digitisation can include making copies of physical originals in digital form, such as by scanning or photographing collections. It can also include projects that improve the quality or management of your existing digital collections. This guide was produced with the aim of sparking creative thinking on how your own digitisation project can use or adapt strategies that have been tried and tested by others.
