LARGE-SCALE COLLABORATION STRATEGIES AND INFRASTRUCTURES TO ENHANCE THE USE OF DIGITAL HERITAGE COLLECTIONS
In many countries, libraries have worked together to enhance the visibility of their national heritage through a national digital library. In Europe, Europeana is the continental digital library, and humanity as a whole has a World Digital Library to discover its most precious treasures.
Now the time has come to reinforce and expand these collaborative initiatives over the cloud, to foster new research opportunities and include born digital documents as well.
New kinds of collaborations, large-scale or international, are now needed. Tools like IIIF are becoming standards which must be mastered by librarians, and Research Infrastructures are being created which demand the expertise of librarians on their collections and on information management. Born-digital documents represent new challenges that probably need to be addressed collaboratively, and solutions are still to be found.
