Digitisation of local information in the Pomurje region of Slovenia


Könyvtári Figyelő (Library Review) vol. 15. (51.) 2005. no. 3. pp. 554 – 558.

For the libraries serving ethnic minorities in the Pomurje region, the digitisation of documents related to local history is an urgent issue both for preservation purposes and for supporting related research. Although the Co-operative Online Bibliographic System and Services (COBISS) contains the records of Hungarian books, journals and articles of the aforementioned libraries, a solution needs to be found for the digitisation of the full text. As a first step, a decision needs to be made about the core resources to be digitised, then the ways of cooperation have to be laid out. Making local information available for the wide public would certainly enhance the reputation of libraries and librarians in the Pomurje region.
