The Look-Here! Project partners have developed a series of case studies focusing on various aspects of digitisation in the creative arts:
Digitisation Done, What Now? Step by Step Projects (pdf) - Louise Dennis, Museum of Design in Plastics, Arts University College at Bournemouth

Charging for Reproduction Services (pdf) - Sarah Mahurter, Archives and Special Collections Centre, University of the Arts London
This case study considers lessons learned from developing a charging system for the reproduction of images for commercial use, and through putting it into practice at the Archives and Special Collections Centre at University of the Arts London.
Representing the Festival of Britain: testing archival hierarchies in a digital environment (pdf)
