MINERVA EC - Good practices in digitisation

 

    

Starting from October 2006 MINERVA Project is enlarged to MINERVA EC, MInisterial NEtwoRk for Valorising Activities in digitisation, eContentplus - Supporting the European Digital Library.
 

MinervaEC is a Thematic Network in the area of cultural, scientific information and scholarly content. The Consortium brings together stakeholders and experts from all over Europe, capitalising the results achieved by the previous Minerva project, and supporting the European Commission initiative “i2010 – A European Information Society for growth and employment” as well as the Dynamic Action Plan launched in Bristol in November 2005 by the European Union Member States.
 

MINERVA is collecting a list of good practices in digitisation, according to the ten categories selected in the Good Practice Handbook, edited by the MINERVA Working group 6 - Identification of good practices and competence centres.
  
Here, you find the list of good practices already approved, followed by the date of approval by the NRG (between square brackets, example [YYMMDD] ) and the filled in compilation form containing the description of the good practice and lessons learned.
