Large-Scale Digital Archives: Publisher and Library Case Studies
Speakers: Thijs Willems, Project Manager, Online Archives, Springer; Jasper Faase, Project Manager, Newspaper Digitization Project, National Library of the Netherlands.
This session will present two large scale digitization projects, the Springer Book Archives and the National Library of the Netherlands (aka the Dutch KB). The audience will learn the ‘nuts and bolts’ of these unique projects: key decisions, timelines, consequences for internal and external stakeholders, production matters and clearing hurdles such as rights and permissions. The impact these key initiatives may have on long term preservation, the physical library, metadata and discoverability, author relations and the long tail of usage are topics for discussion with the audience.
