Digitise Overview

Grow your future knowledge by creating digital images of your collections to enable access, preservation, management, and learning


We empower you to protect and preserve your precious material by capturing photographs and paper documents, bound volumes, maps, artworks, 3D-objects, audio and visual records. Through digitisation your captured content can be made searchable, discoverable and reproduced.

Our customers include galleries, libraries, archives, museums, central and local government, Iwi, universities and research organisations, schools, clubs and societies, genealogists, unions, religious organisations, commercial enterprises, artists, families and individuals.

Our expert staff are trained in handling precious and delicate materials and know how to protect and care for your unique records, objects and taonga. From cultural heritage objects to modern and robust materials, NZMS has the experience, equipment and processes to digitise objects of any size, or any quantity.

NZMS operates from four locations throughout New Zealand with specialised and custom built equipment that can be used in our specialist digitisation suites or on-site at your location if your material cannot be transported.

We assist customers to develop their approaches to records and archives management, also theirĀ digitisation strategy, including the creation of policies and procedures. We provide digitisation services to support their strategy as well as providing cloud-based collection management and community engagement platforms. For those customers wanting to develop an in-house capability we provide assistance in selecting and providing equipment, establishing an appropriate physical environment and training personnel.
