TOOLS FOR MASS DIGITIZATION AND LONG-TERM PRESERVATION

IN CULTURAL HERITAGE INSTITUTIONS

 

Abstract: This paper describes the present state of digital libraries infrastructure in Poland, with focus on the tools crucial for daily digital libraries duties, such as online availability, long-term preservation and digitization workflow management. Currently, there are over 80 digital libraries in Poland, providing access to over 1 000 000 digital objects. Such a great amount of resources and digitization efforts requires specialized tools for the management and safety of the resulting assets. Poznan Supercomputing and Networking Center has been actively supporting digitization with innovative ICT technologies and R&D outputs to foster and improve digitization in Poland. Therefore, PSNC has developed several software tools for this purpose, including dLibra, dMuseion, dArceo and dLab.
