DISH2015, the conference about digital strategies for heritage, was all about empowering heritage institutions and their digital wares. What added value can digitisation bring to the physical objects? What value does it bring to society? And how do we create this value?
At the KU Leuven, enriching heritage is the fundament of digitisation activities.
The university library’s collections are an almost never-ending source of content, waiting to be opened up through digitisation. At the other side of the chain: the university’s academics, with new research questions that require new tools for opening up the collections.
At DISH 2015, we talked about our strategy to team up with research, about how it is the drive behind innovation of our digitisation services, and about how enriching heritage enables exciting new research perspectives.
