Europeana Newspapers project – survey

The Europeana Newspapers project published a survey to learn about available digitised newspapers in Europe. The survey is aimed at institutions that are not currently part of the Europeana Newspapers project. As it is mentioned on the Europeana Newspapers website the survey has three purposes:

  1. To get a clear idea of the extent of newspaper digitisation within Europe
  2. To record the relevant metadata in the Berlin State Library’s Catalogue of Serials (http://www.zeitschriftendatenbank.de/) and as part of the central index of newspapers being created by The European Library (http://www.theeuropeanlibrary.org/)
  3. To help locate 10 additional partners to join the project

The survey is available at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/BQ28579 and it is open until 31st of July 2012.
