      • Today:
      • W hy digital heritage statistics
      • Dutch e xperience
        • Heritage Sector
        • Museums
      MCN 2009 - Digital Heritage in the Netherlands
      • Why
      • L imited resources
      • 3 decade h istory
      • Need to k now  ‘ meten is weten ’
      • I nform d ecision m aking
      MCN 2009 - Digital Heritage in the Netherlands
      • Dutch e xperience
        • Registration is ongoing, 2007 NLD estimates for museum collections:
        • (DEN 2008, NMV 2007, MusIP 2007)
        • Registered  there is a record of the object = 83%
        • Automated  the recorded object is in digital format = 57%
        • Digitized  there is a digital image of the object = 37%
        • Documented  the object has context information = 34-54%
        • Online  information about the object can be found online = 31%
      MCN 2009 - Digital Heritage in the Netherlands No data on costs
      • Digital Facts
        • Project goals:
        • To develop a system that could be implemented for the s tructural g athering of digital heritage data (production output + expenditure).
        • To gather s tatistical d ata that would give policy makers an insight into the currently available digital heritage and the investment that has taken place.
        • Number of objects + Objects digitized + Digitization expenditure
        • Initiated by EC Numeric Project
        • Commissioned by Ministry of Education, Cultural Affairs and Science
        • Coordinated by Digital Heritage Foundation DEN
        • Number of on-line visitors ✗ % collections available on-line/on-site ✓
      MCN 2009 - Digital Heritage in the Netherlands
      • Digital Facts
        • Museums = 41 / 775 (science, art and history incl. ethnography, other)
        • Libraries = 21 / 699 (National, public, special, scientific)
        • Archives = 38 / 329
        • AV = 2 / 3
        • Combined institutions = 11 (research centers)
        • Monuments and archaeological sites = 0 / 50,700,000
        • Total Digital Facts responses = 128
      MCN 2009 - Digital Heritage in the Netherlands 5 sectors
      • Digital Facts
      • Production
      • 23% is digitized
      • 41% must be digitized
      • 36% does not have
      • to be digitized

      • Digital Facts
      • Production
      • Expenditure (in euros)
      MCN 2009 - Digital Heritage in the Netherlands Expenditure: average $ 158,686 USD

      • Costs areas
      MCN 2009 - Digital Heritage in the Netherlands
      • Dutch e xperience
        • There is no homogenous concept for digitization
        • Registration + Image + Context (documentation + stories/links)
      • Production process involves different people / institutions
      • Sector differences are based on object characteristics
      • Libraries: labor = 70% expenditure ($ 74,151 per staff), highest collaboration
      • Archives: labor = 70% expenditure ($ 36,062 per staff) , 72% structural funds, highest expenditure
      • Museums: labor = 90% expenditure ($ 82,832 per staff) , 81% production in-house
        • Outsourcing: painting 80x newspapers / OCR books 9x other OCR
      • Missing culture of accountability
      • Need for comparable data measures

      MCN 2009 - Digital Heritage in the Netherlands Expenditure: average € 792,918
      • Dutch e xperience
        • P roduction, e xpenditure and a ccess: The Digital Facts survey to museums
        • More than half of collections (ca. 30 million objects) still needs to be digitized
        • Digitization is more than a picture on-line. Goal = increase findability
        • Registration + Image + Context (documentation + stories / links )
        • 9 museums could not report total institutional budget
        • 26 museums reported allocated budget = 5% for digital activities
        • AV reported spending over 3 million = 15% of total budget
        • 7% of FTE’s allocated towards digital activities (AV 11%, AEH 9%, other 3%)
        • Digital activities not integrated as core activity, only 19 museums reported having an information plan

      • Dutch e xperience
        • P roduction, e xpenditure and a ccess: The Digital Facts survey to museums
        • No data / no method to isolate contextual information (wanted?)
        • Data from Digital Facts is first indication, expenditure data still scarce
        • Up to 3 decade history. Continuous investment required to benefit from past efforts
        • Need for method to link production expenditure to benefits of access (follow-up More Digital Facts project)
        • Informed decision making requires data on expenditure, production and access
      MCN 2009 - Digital Heritage in the Netherlands
      • Dutch e xperience
        • Data gathering strategies:
        • Self-registration
        • Increase transparency
        • Support structural accountability
        • at national level
        • Protect past investment with
        • sustainable future financing
