Campaign for the collection of Good practices in digitisation
MINERVA has started a new campaign for the collection of good
practices in digitisation and information on competence centres.
Do you think that your institution is a competence centre? That
the project you are managing is a good practice? That you can
share with the MINERVA community your lessons learned? Send us
the relevant forms.
At the Alicante "Workshop on digitisation good practice",
with the support of the Spanish Presidency and Minerva, 42 examples
were collected by the National Representative Group in May 2002.
