Abstract

Digitising historical documents in a better, faster and cheaper manner with the IMPACT Centre of competence

The IMPACT Centre of competence fosters the creation and transfer of digitisation technology through a network which brings together complementary communities: digitisation practitioners, libraries, content holders, researchers, technical experts as well as service providers. IMPACT is managed by Fundacion Biblioteca Virtual Miguel de Cervantes and has over 30 members including research centres, private companies as well as libraries and cultural heritage institutions. The poster aims at presenting what IMPACT is offering to the library and cultural heritage community: - Showcase, test and evaluate the latest digitisation tools and techniques - Access to a unique collection of images, ground-truth and lexica - Consultancy on digitisation techniques - Collaborate in the construction of a unique professional training environment Cooperate with joint research and development projects - Get involved in the most relevant events in Europe on digitisation technology. http://www.digitisation.eu
