Technological Landscapes for Tomorrow's Cultural Economy

Unlocking the Value of Cultural Heritage

Being digital for many European archives, libraries and museums (ALMs) is no longer an option but a reality. They have turned into "hybrid institutions" that take care of both, analogue as well as digital cultural resources. The conversion of all sorts of cultural contents into bits and bytes opens up a completely new dimension of reaching traditional and new audiences by providing access to cultural heritage resources in ways unimaginable a decade ago.

As Paul Fiander, Head of BBC Information and Archives, UK, brings it to the point: "The dividend from investment into going digital is substantial." And it promises even greater returns iin the future.

The DigiCULT Report provides recommendations for decision makers of European archives, libraries, museums and policy makers at European, national and regional level.
