Impact training materials


The IMPACT Training Materials is a repository of resources that offer practical guidance to museums, libraries and archives undertaking or considering a text-based digitisation project.

These training materials consist of a logically structured series of materials that deal with all the common stages of a digitisation workflow. It provides general guidelines, case studies, tools and training materials that will help resolve most issues facing a digitisation project or programme. These resources are particularly aimed at digitisation projects and programmes that are creating workflows to handle OCR on historic text.


These resources were founded primarily on experience and research undertaken during the IMPACT project (http://www.impact-project.eu).
