Unlocking the Value of Cultural Heritage
Being digital for many European archives, libraries
and museums (ALMs) is no longer an option but a reality. They have
turned into "hybrid institutions" that take care of both,
analogue as well as digital cultural resources. The conversion of
all sorts of cultural contents into bits and bytes opens up a completely
new dimension of reaching traditional and new audiences by providing
access to cultural heritage resources in ways unimaginable a decade
