Digital: Preservation and Long-term Access through NETworked Services
HATII was a key partner in the EU-funded FP6 Planets project, which developed tools, approaches and courses to address the challenge of preserving access to digital cultural and scientific knowledge. The project involved 15 other partners from national libraries, archives, universities and technology companies throughout Europe, including IBM, The British Library, National Library of the Netherlands, Swiss Federal Archives and The Austrian Institute of Technology. HATII led the development of a testbed environment to evaluate tools and services as well as devising the Planets training programme, a successful series of events which raised awareness of digital preservation and the project’s solutions amongst memory institution staff from across Europe and beyond.
