Abstract: Digital technology opens up a totally new perspective. The World Wide Web holds millions of websites and the Internet is the market place for research, teaching, expression, publication and communication of information. Libraries and archives are society’s primary information providers and were early users of the new digital technology with respect to cataloguing and processing management, and later for providing information on their collections to the www-community. Besides preserving and providing access to `born digital material’ a great number of archives and libraries nowadays have also turned to creating digital surrogates from their existing resources. It is for those libraries and archives that these guidelines have been compiled. Guidelines for Digitization Projects for collections and holdings in the public domain, particularly those held by libraries and archives.
