Commission’s Recommendation on Digitisation and Digital Preservation

The European Commission on 28th October 2011 has adopted a Recommendation on Digitisation and Digital Preservation, asking Member States to step up their efforts, pool their resources and involve private actors in digitising cultural material and making it available through Europeana. The Recommendation invites Member States to make available through Europeana 30 million objects by 2015, including all Europe’s masterpieces which are no longer protected by copyright, and all material digitised with public funding.
