Abstract

This article, based on a presentation given at the UKSG annual conference in April 2008, is about the JISC large-scale digitisation programme, which started in 2004 when HEFCE gave JISC a one-off grant of £10 million. JISC handed the responsibility for this fund to its Content Services committee, of which I was a member at the time, and from there the Digitisation Advisory Group (DAG) was set up to manage the programme. I was asked to be chair and I have continued in that role despite having completed my term of office on the committee a couple of years ago.
