Workshop Addresses Digitization of Cultural Heritage Collections

OSA will hold a workshop on Nov. 5 to exchange knowledge in the field of digitizing cultural heritage collections in non-state institutions in Central Europe. The workshop will showcase two of OSA’s EU-supported Best Practices Network projects. One is the HOPE project, which brings together European social history institutions aiming to improve access to the vast and growing amount of significant but scattered digital collections on social history. The other is the EAwareness project, in which libraries, archives, museums, and digital developers work together to publicize the European Digital Library (Europeana) to a broad public and generate new content via user participation.
