Wellcome Library Launches Major Digitisation Project

Old Books 2

The Wellcome Library today announces the launch of an ambitious digitisation project, to provide free, online access to its collections, including archives and papers from Nobel prize-winning scientists Francis Crick, Fred Sanger and Peter Medawar.

Wellcome Trust is doing an amazing job with the digitisation of their libraryphotos and with their outreach through new media and newsletters. I find their work very holistic in capturing the entire public’s attention towards science and the benefits to society at large. Their strategic plan also seems to focus on moving research into application areas, faster.

Wish we could have a similar focused and proactive organisation like this in Singapore. Could we??
