Digital Collections Workshop: Digitisation of Newspapers in European Libraries
The Europeana newspaper project demonstrated the many activities of digitisation in European libraries. Recent developments in Finland, Denmark and Norway are aiming at large scale digitisation and at securing access to collections of active, copyright-protected newspapers. The Digital Collections Working Group has engaged the National Library of Norway to survey the state of these developments in Europe. The results of the survey and best practice examples will be presented at the workshop.
