Digitizing the Scandinavian cultural heritage

Digitizing the Scandinavian cultural heritage opens up amazingly new opportunities – for high level academics as well as for genealogists and local historians. But moving into the digital age also means facing some warnings concerning criticism of sources, as Christopher Natzén has experienced in his academic research. The digital age may create threats towards minority languages, pointed out by Finnish/Swedish librarian Leif Storbrjök. This issue presents a number of digitizing projects and strategy developments run by libraries, museums and archives in Scandinavia. Books, newspapers, pictures, films, television, music and radio – as the theme of this number of SLQ indicates, they must all be made accessible to the citizens.
