Libraries, museums and archives all deal increasingly with documents, publications and information in electronic form. This new environment requires them to take on digitisation, archiving, preservation, new user services and new economic models in a complex legal framework.
The seminar is hence a unique opportunity for those interested in the fields of libraries, museums or archives to share their experience of handling digital information and to discuss common issues and challenges. It also aims at providing new ideas for the definition of strategies for co-operation in a digital environment.
The seminar is organised around six main sessions:
The seminar will be held in one of the most attractive and historical buildings of Amsterdam, the Koninklijke Nederlandse Akademie van Wetenschappen (KNAW). Once the residence of an important trading family, it is now the seat of the Royal Dutch Academy of Sciences.
For further information and reservations, please contact:

The registration fee will be 200 Dutch Guilders. Coffee, lunch and social events are included in the price.
These themes will be illustrated by presentations of ongoing projects, most of which are sponsored by the European Commission.
