IMPACT - Improving Access to Text

Name: 
Improving Access to Text
Acronym: 
IMPACT

The IMPACT project brings together fifteen national and regional libraries, research institutions and commercial suppliers - all centres of competence with unequalled experience of large-scale text digitisation processes and technologies. The project will let them share their know-how and best practices, develop innovative tools to enhance the capabilities of OCR engines and the accessibility of digitised text and lay down the foundations for the mass-digitisation programmes that will take place over the next decade. This project will facilitate a more collaborative approach to mass-digitisation. It will build capacity and lower the barriers to entry for organisations in the early stages of their own digitisation activity.
