    • Heritage-policy in Sittard-Geleen in context: Together stronger! Peer BoselieDirector Euregionaal Historisch Centrum Sittard-Geleen (Netherlands-Limburg) 1 www.ehc.sittard-geleen.nl
    • Erfgoed-eXtra ‘Volunteers and civic society,the road to a strategic heritage council’ Sittard-Geleen is a town of 100.00 inhabitants. 20 historical societies with ca 2000 members. In the region (the border-region of the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany) at about 250.000 people. Interesting : the fact that Europe in our region is always very nearby. (3 Euregions) Cooperation shows the relativity of borders throughout history. In this way we work constantly to encourage more understanding between people. 2

    • Developments in the archival setting Our Archives ca 9 fte, +/- 35 volunteers (ca 8 fte) +/- 3.000 ‘live’visits from researchers per year, More ‘clustering’ of municipal and regional archives (‘archives with addes value’) Sittard-Geleen, Stein, Beek, Schinnen… Archives more external: show the world what we have! Coöperation is the the basis Very strong digitization (e.g. In our archives +/- 400.000 scans online.This year +/- 3 million search actions and at about 5 million page views in website) (in 2009: in total 30.000 search actions, 2010 > 1 million) www.ehc.sittard-geleen.eu 4
    • Developments in Museums The Museum has ca 25.000 visitorsper year A lot more interaction with thevisitors Making exhibitions together with thepartners: archives, library, historicalassociations. Our region more then once agood practice… Digitization also here an opportunitywhen original object gets more and betterattention (more context) 5
    • Developments in Libraries The Library has at about 300.000 visitorsper year A lot more interaction with the clients More and more digital information, less books Coöperation with other heritage-institutions, but also schools, book-shops, rest-homes etcetera Low-profile information in a ‘heritage-point’ (in cooperation with archives, museum and historical associations) 6
    • Developments within historical associations  The historical associations (totally ca 30) have ca 2500 members and ca 150 to 200 volunteers that are the ´core´.  Volunteers, from amateurs to almost full-time professionals  Need to be taken serious  Centres of knowledge and thus worth a certain amount of money  Also here strong digitization, but not always well done, lots of different formats…  Crucial to obtain added value for professional institutions (and the other way around…) 7
    • Duties of the Archives, Musea and Library- Presentation-function (analogue ánd digitally)- Platformfunction (ca 30 associations in the region)- Hinge between old and new (‘lubricating oil’) rather a debate then a collision- Cooperation (in projects and structurally)- Facilitating (meetings, logistics…)- Educational programme (symposia, presentations, publications, (mobile) 8 internet

    • C) Formats need to be the sameFormats (simple but correct!) are developedfor … -Image (photo s, slides, negatives, postcards etc) -Sound -Moving images (video, film) together with the film institution > Limburgs Museum (a tin of happiness) -(museum) Objects 22
    • Points of interestAgreement concerning the formatsAgreement about your own identity (or identities…!)Possibility of a codicil of a will (and agreement…)No macho` behaviour!: cooperation is keyword!!Communication-PR 23
    • What is the result of this cooperation (exept for alogo that gives a mutual ‘face’ to our cooperation): Let’s look at one of the projects: Aezel-projek 24
    • A fast growing site, started in Sittard, but fast growing at the moment. Being filled at this moment by more than 60 people, adding each month tenths of thousands of facts about houses and people: Aezel-projek is: Interesting for the public, challenging for creative industry, important for the civil servants (archeologie, law-enforcement, historical background-info, pollution-areas etc..) momentarily still ‘behind the screen’but in a few months ‘live’ http://www.aezelprojek.nl/ Keywords: low-budget participation from people to structures, not the other way around 25
