"This report on Digitisation, Online Accessibility and Digital Preservation of Cultural Material reviews and assesses the overall progress achieved in the European Union in implementing the Commission Recommendation of 27 October 2011 on the digitisation and online accessibility of cultural material and digital preservation (2011/711/EU), as well as the related Council Conclusions of 10 May 2012.
Digital technologies and the internet bring unprecedented opportunities to access cultural material for leisure, study or work, reaching out to broader audiences, engaging in new user experiences and reusing it to develop learning and educational content, documentaries, tourism applications, games and other innovative applications.
The Commission Recommendation on digitisation and online accessibility and digital preservation of cultural material (2011/711/EU), endorsed by the Council in May 2012, asked Member States to step up their efforts, pool their resources and involve the private sector in digitising cultural material, in order to increase online accessibility of European cultural heritage and boost growth in Europe’s creative industries. The digitized material should be made more widely available through Europeana, Europe’s digital library, archive and museum."
