D-fest 2022: Eleventh Festival of Croatian Digitisation Projects
On 12 and 13 May 2022, the National and University Library in Zagreb (NSK) is hosting online the Eleventh Festival of Croatian Digitisation Projects, the 2022 edition of the Library’s annual programme spotlighting issues surrounding the digitisation of cultural and scientific heritage, digital resources management systems, digital products and services provided by cultural institutions and the most recent digitisation projects in the heritage sector.
This year’s D-fest will provide an overview of the activities conducted so far as part of e-Culture, currently the largest national digitisation project in Croatia, aimed at the development of infrastructure for the management of digital heritage and the strengthening of heritage institutions with regard to the digitisation of their resources, permanent storage of digital resources, digital unification and the development of digital heritage-related services. The e-Culture project will be presented by the representatives of the Croatian Ministry of Culture and Media and its partner institutions, which along with the National and University Library in Zagreb are the Croatian State Archives, Museum of Arts and Crafts and Croatian Radio Television.
The Festival’s programme will also present European cultural sector policies and projects dealing with the digital transformation of heritage institutions, but also with the use of digital resources in education and e-learning. Various projects focusing on digitisation and the development of digital products and services and the results of large and years-long systematic digitisation projects will also be presented, along with innovative tools for the promotion of digital heritage in the digital environment.
