A Snapshot of Digitisation and OCR Developments

A study providing a snapshot of Digitisation and OCR Developments within the five Knowledge Exchange partner countries.

1 January 2014 - 10 December 2014,  00:00 - 00:00, 

This paper, deliberately labelled 'snapshot' is a synthesis of the information gathered following a questionnaire sent to 15 infrastructure institutions, including libraries and funders, within the five partner countries of Knowledge Exchange: Denmark (DK), Finland (FIN), Germany (GER), the Netherlands (NL) and the United Kingdom (UK).

The questionnaire addressed current practice, interest and developments in the area of digitisation, including non-textual and 3-D-digitisation. The synthesis is meant to inform the Knowledge Exchange partner organisations. KE gladly shares with those who are interested in the area.

It should be noted that the results are by no means representative of the complete situation in the five countries. The snapshot identifies the sort of activities and challenges currently at play. The similarities and differences noted are based on a limited number of respondents and are indicative only.
