About the Webinar

Martina Hoffmann (Swiss National Library) and Tomasz Gruszkowski (National Library of Poland) will provide some theory (very practice oriented) and real-life examples. There will be a possibility of sending your questions to the speakers in chat.

Martina Hoffmann will ask the question crucial for what you get and what you see after digitizing:  what does implementing a Standard or a Guideline mean and how it can help, and what decisions have to be made? In this webinar we will take an overview look into what kinds of Standards or Guidelines for the digitisation of Cultural heritage there are and where they differ or not. Martina will propose how to use them in practice and what is the meaning of applying them for different sizes of operations.

Tomasz Gruszkowski will moderate the webinar and ask questions.
