Online training

The IMPACT Centre of Competence offers its members online training (webinars) about crucial aspects of digitisation.

The British Library has a large digitisation portfolio and currently there are about 25 initiatives at the British Library which vary in terms of scale, funding models and process.

Digitisation is delivered both internally and through partnerships and the Library has been investing in infrastructure and business process developments. The presentation will explain the processes in place for planning and delivery of internal digitisation projects, including standards and technical developments to support ingest and access to digitised content via the Universal Viewer. It will also highlight some of the digitisation partnerships with culture heritage institutions and commercial companies.

The webinar will present the large experience of the BnF in mass digitisation and digitisation processes (OCR, digital archiving, …). The BnF also offers access to its digital library Gallica obtained through the library’s commitment to the digitisation of selected items of its collections. Gallica now contains over 3,5 million digitised documents: manuscripts, sound materials and music score, books, images and newspapers issues, in French and other languages. They cover all domains of knowledge, with a specific focus in literature and history.

Together with these collections, all in public domain, Gallica gives access to digitised documents belonging to French partner libraries as well as a set of copyrighted documents in collaboration with the French Publishers Association, some publishers and e-retailers.
