Symposium: Digitisation of Written Heritage

30 and 31 March at the Institut National du Patrimoine (Paris)

Alongside the launch of programmes for the mass digitisation of printed books and the press, the digitisation of manuscripts and written archives is increasingly becoming a major issue in policies for the promotion of written heritage.

Limited at first to small projects or focussing on the “treasures” of the institutions where they are housed, today the scope of digitisation projects is expanding, often taking the form of collaborative projects on a national and international scale.
