Charters in the Bergen University Library - XML encoding and digitisation in cooperation with the faculty
MetadataShow full item record
The paper presents an ongoing digitisation project on old charters in the Bergen University Library Special Collections. The idea for this project originated in cooperation between the faculty and the library and AKSIS, an information technology development department associated with our university. Together we handed in an application for funding to the Norwegian National Research Council, and we were so lucky as to receive the funding. In this paper I wish to underline the value of cooperation between university library and faculty. I also aim to outline the material and technical matters of our project on old charters, with emphasis on the XML text encoding standards used.
