Digitisation at the BnF: Introduction to an experience and a workflow

| Free

19th Apr 2017 : 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM


The webinar will present the large experience of the BnF in mass digitisation and digitisation processes (OCR, digital archiving, …). The BnF also offers access to its digital library Gallica obtained through the library’s commitment to the digitisation of selected items of its collections. Gallica now contains over 3,5 million digitised documents: manuscripts, sound materials and music score, books, images and newspapers issues, in French and other languages. They cover all domains of knowledge, with a specific focus in literature and history.

Together with these collections, all in public domain, Gallica gives access to digitised documents belonging to French partner libraries as well as a set of copyrighted documents in collaboration with the French Publishers Association, some publishers and e-retailers.

Session leads:

Jean-Baptiste Vaisman and Jean-Philippe Moreux, Bibliothèque nationale de France
