The “Digitalization Handbook for E-Archives” is produced by the non-governmental organization “Ideju Forums” in the frame of the activities carried out in the project “Cross border E-archive”.
This Handbook is designed to give an overview of the digitalization process for historical documents. It is intended to cover the basics of the digitalization projects in Europe in general and of the project “Cross Border E-archive” in a concise manner. The handbook contains a useful list of further reading, much of which references sources available on the Web. It is aimed at information professionals and archivists managing the project “Cross Border E-archive” and digitizing the cultural heritage materials, but is also of value to the project end-users, like researchers and students.
