Digital Information Resources Roundtable: Working Group (1) Forum for Promotion of Digital Archives in Public Libraries

Survey on best practices of digital archiving projects conducted by public libraries in Japan (FY2010)

In this survey, interviews by e-mail were conducted about the start of digital archiving projects, contents, process and framework for construction of digital archives, daily work and issues, participation of regional residents, cooperation with other institutions, use of commercial services, future prospects, etc.

Each answer from the surveyed institutions is available in Japanese only.
