Our digitised collections are available to search online. Where possible we make the data and images freely available for re-use.

Digital Media Bank

Our Digital Media Bank is the best way of searching our collections online. There are currently over 28,000 openly licensed or public domain hi-res images of objects in our collections, alongside other digital content such as teaching packs.

The Digital Media Bank is also the best means of thematically browsing through our collections, and sharing them online.

The Keep

Some objects from our local history collections are held at The Keep. These can be found and ordered using The Keep’s online catalogue.

New online collections

We are currently working on a new presentation of our digitised collections using the IIIF format and the Universal Viewer.

This is still a work in progress but a temporary search facility can be found on our Close Look Collections website.
