IISH will make its digital collections available in the framework of the EU project: Heritage of the People's Europe (HOPE). The HOPE project brings together a partnership of eleven European social history instutions with the aim to improve access to their highly significant but scattered (digital) collections.
It proposes to achieve this:
- by promoting the adoption of standards and best practices for digital libraries amongst its partners,
- by ensuring that the metadata and the content become available through Europeana and other discovery services
- by implementing a full scale technical solution for web based discovery to delivery.
HOPE is a 3-year project (May 2010 – May 2013), co-funded by the European Commission, under the ICT-PSP programme.
