IFLA/UNESCO survey on digitisation and preservation

Keywords Surveys, Preservation, Libraries, Digital

The IFLA Core Programmes for UAP (Universal Availability of Publications) and for PAC (Preservation and Conservation) have been working together in the field of digitised library collections of cultural heritage material. The project, which is being carried out in the framework of UNESCO's Memory of the World programme, has three strands: a survey of current library activity in the area of digitisation of cultural heritage material; the development of a Website from which all digitised library collections of national significance will be linked, forming a "virtual library" of digitised cultural heritage; and a report on digital preservation.

The survey has now been completed, and the published results will soon be available on the UNESCO Website. In the meantime, print copies of the report are available, free of charge, from the UAP Office. Contact Richard Ebdon at: richard.ebdon@bl.uk
