Digitisation of the materials

Through long-term digitising operations, we create critical mass for research and public use. We promote digitising and, through it, the visibility, equal availability and usability of our unique collections.­

High-quality metadata ensures the reuse and long-term preservation of digital materials. We produce descriptive metadata for analogous materials in accordance with international standards.  In addition to the technical quality of scanning, in digitising we ensure the existence of extensive technical and administrative metadata.

We make our digital collections as widely accessible as possible through viewing and search systems. Digital collections promote, in particular, new kind of research, teaching, public use of materials and creative operations. We make digitised, copyrighted materials available for use through various agreements.
