Reshaping the Research Library Steering Committee Workshop

Making Digitised Collections Available at Trans-National Level

The Reshaping the Research Library Steering Committee organises this workshop focused on making digitised collections available at trans-national level. Over the last few years, there have been a number of (inter-)national initiatives to integrate digitised collections and make them available to the academic community. For instance, these include the Dutch ‘Delpher’ and the HathiTrust. This workshop aims to bring together research libraries and public/private partners around this topic in order to share and discuss experiences, needs and approaches. Lectures and panel sessions will provide a broad discussion of all the current models as well as looking at future strategies in this respect.
