NLA wins ACT Project of the Year award for digital replacement program
The National Library of Australia (NLA) has won the ACT’s Project of the Year, awarded by the Australian Institute of Project Management (AIPM), reports PS News.
The NLA was recognised for its Digital Library Infrastructure Replacement (DLIR) program, which uses digital technology to collect, manage, preserve and deliver its books, photographs, manuscripts, oral histories, maps, newspapers and more from its collection of more than 10 million items.
NLA director-general Marie-Louise Ayres said the program had ‘transformed the library’s future operating capability by providing systems capable of managing and delivering ever-increasing digital collections at scale’.
The NLA now goes in the AIPM’s national award program, the winners of which will be announced in Melbourne on 23 October.
