"Digitally Archiving the World's Museums" article series

An article series entitled “Digitally Archiving the World’s Museums” was launched on the Nissha Foundation for Printing Culture and Technology website AMeet. The first article, which is subtitled “What kind of digitalization is being called for?”, goes over the history of digital archiving and summarizes our project’s approach to the archiving of cultural properties.

Later articles will introduce museums and libraries that are currently advancing digital archiving.
