Conclusions and Recommendations
- Make sure your organisation prepared
- Set your quality standards and live up to them
- There is need for a “Gothic-OCR” programme
- Get as much out of the project as you can
Although we made some serious mistakes (like the black and white microfilm), we did not stay within budget and it took us quite a few hours more than expected, I still consider “The World of Peter Stuyvesant” as a success. We achieved our main goals: digitisation of old printed books for education and the development of digital learning environment that fitted our needs. And, what’s more, the students were very enthousiastic about it.
