MetadataShow full item record
The introductory chapters of the BPG provide background information and comparison of the BPG with similar publications. The important steps which should be carried out prior to the digitisation work can be found in Chapter 4 Pre-Digitisation setup . Chapter 5 Digitisation workflow introduces the next step and primarily refers to digitisation in practice. After the production of a digital version of the particular item, the digital object has to be delivered to BHL-Europe and finally ingested into the BHL-Europe and Europeana portals. This is described step by step in Chapter 6 Preparation of data for BHL-Europe . A highlight is the fact that a user no longer needs to be an IT-specialist to perform this task, which in turn can save resources. General Information and helpful tips and examples are included in Chapter 7 General Information . Finally Abbreviations and Glossary helps to navigate through the abbreviations used within this document. The Appendix provides two helpful documents for practical digitisation work. This contributes to an easier reading of the Best Practice Guidelines and Standards.
